PROSSER — Prosser police arrested a 41-year-old Sunnyside man accused of stabbing another man Monday.

Police went to the Barn RV Park, 490 Wine Country Road, on a report of an assault Monday, and found a 61-year-old man with a stab wound in his chest area, according to a police news release. He was taken to a local hospital with what police said were wounds that were not life-threatening.

The suspect barricaded himself inside a mobile home for a short time and came out but refused to comply with officers, the release said. Officers were able to subdue the man by using what the release described as a “less lethal device” as he tried to go back inside.

After being checked at a local hospital, the suspect was booked into the Benton County Jail on suspicion of first-degree assault and trespassing, the release said.

Washington State Patrol, Benton County Sheriff’s Office and Grandview police assisted, the release said.
