Saturday Stabbing

Posted on 22nd April 2013 at 15:48

Alexander Sophan Vath, 19, of Longview is under arrest on charges of second-degree assault and MIP, after he allegedly stabbed his seven year-old brother in the arm Saturday night. Today’s Daily News reports that Longview Police got involved in this incident at about 11 pm on Saturday, when the boy’s mother took him to St. John Medical Center with what was described as a “gash” in his arm. Officers met with Vath, who reportedly admitted the stabbing, supposedly saying that he “wanted to see what would happen.” The victim was treated and released, while Vath was booked into the Cowlitz County Jail. He continues to be held without bail, pending a court hearing to be held today.
