Two people are under arrest after an alleged assault that took place early this morning in West Kelso. Around 12:30 this morning, a man called 911, claiming that two other men in a dark-colored Honda were chasing his friend, armed with a large knife. Kelso and Longview Police both responded to the scene, and a car matching the description of the suspects’ was stopped near Taco Bell on Ocean Beach Highway. Blake Croy, 20, and a 17 year-old male were identified as the suspects in the original incident, and a large knife was recovered. Croy was booked into the Cowlitz County Jail, while the 17 year-old was taken to the Juvenile Services Center, both on second-degree assault charges. Kelso Police also say that both men had outstanding warrants, and they could face additional charges in Longview, as well. Police say the incident relates to an ongoing property dispute between the parties involved.
