Woman’s throat slashed after party in Grays Harbor County

A 25 year old Aberdeen man remains in jail on two counts of Assault in the First Degree after allegedly slashing the throat of a Wishkah Road resident at the end of a party early Sunday morning. Chief Criminal Deputy Steve Shumate with the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Department reports the man was passed out at the home in the 50 block of Johnson Road as the 51 year old woman was being taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen by her husband. He was taken into custody without incident, a 22 year old neighbor who was at the home at the time of the attack told investigators that they had hosted a party earlier that night, and while most had left the suspect and two victims were the last three awake when he became violent and slashed at them with a knife. The commotion woke her husband and while the three began to subdue him he passed out – and remained that way until officers woke him around 3 Sunday morning. The husband immediately took his wife to the hospital. Shumate said upon arrival, deputies met the husband in the parking lot and the victim was rushed in.  The cut to her throat was significant however not life threatening.  It was also determined that the reporting party had sustained a number of cut wounds as well however did not require hospitalization.  The suspect was extremely intoxicated and had to be taken to the hospital to be cleared for incarceration.  It appears that the attack was unprovoked and without notice.  He is currently in the Grays Harbor County Jail on two counts of Assault 1st degree.
