Just after 2:00 in the morning today, 6-10-24, Spokane Police responded to a call of a person with a weapon in the 300 block of W. North River Drive. Upon arrival they learned that two security workers from a business in the area observed a group of males destroying property around Washington St. between Spokane Falls Blvd. and North River Dr. Officers further learned that the teens approached one of the workers, pulled out a firearm and threatened the worker, who then returned to his security truck. The teens circled the truck, with both workers in it and began yelling at them, being disorderly, and striking the truck. The workers were able to call 911 and get away from the group.

Patrol officers obtained information on and descriptions of the teens and with the help of Park Rangers at Riverfront Park, they quickly located the group and detained them. Officers were able to develop probable cause to arrest all 5 males and, based on the unprovoked nature of, and the aggressive manner of, the attack on the workers and their vehicle, along with the brandishing of a gun, each were charged with Felony Harassment. The gun was located on one of the teenagers and it was discovered to be a realistic airsoft pistol. Additionally, due to the reckless nature of the individuals as a group and the damage done to property including porta-pottys, fencing, and traffic/construction cones, all were charged with Criminal Mischief Riot. Additional charges for certain teens include Felony Harassment Weapon Involved, Minor in Possession/Liquor, and 2nd Degree Malicious Mischief.

Two adults were booked into the Spokane County Jail. They are Cordell J. Walker (19) and Timothy J. Goodman (18). The other three involved teens are juveniles and were booked into the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center.
