Two suspects sought in Omak stabbing

Police would not release the victim’s name on Tuesday

— Two suspects remain at large after a local man was stabbed in the thigh following an argument May 16.

The man, whom authorities refused to identify, was treated for a stab wound after an altercation on N. Birch Street, police records said.

Police were called at 6 p.m. to a home at 216 N. Birch St.

Sgt. Jeff Koplin said the victim, a 33-year-old Omak man, apparently had been involved in an ongoing dispute with three other people. One allegedly drew a knife and stabbed the man in the leg.

One person, Faith Ann Flores, 27, was arrested May 17, but the other two are still sought, Okanogan County Superior Court records show.

Flores heard anticipated charges of first-degree assault and first-degree robbery (accomplice) May 20 in Superior Court. Bail was set at $50,000.

County Clerk Charleen Groomes said no other paperwork had been filed as of early May 21.

Prosecuting Attorney Karl Sloan could not be reached for comment.

Koplin would not identify the victim or the suspects because the investigation is ongoing.

The victim received stitches for his wound, Koplin said.

The home where the stabbing occurred is owned by Janet R. Jordan, according to the county assessor’s office.
