Suspect Arrest at Scene of Early Morning Violent Assault

Spokane Valley Deputies responding to an alarm at the Cenex Zip Trip early this morning arrested 36-year-old Michael D. Rush who was still inside the store. The store clerk/victim, who had been viciously beaten and sexually assaulted, was found inside the bathroom of the business.
###

Early this morning, just before 5:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a panic alarm at the Cenex Zip Trip Store, located at 8215 E. Trent, in Spokane Valley.

Already in the area, Deputies arrived quickly and found the 24-hour store dark inside with the front door unlocked. When they began to enter, they contacted a male later identified as Rush, exiting the bathroom. Rush was immediately detained as Deputies worked to locate anyone else inside the business.

The injured adult female (early 40s) victim was found inside the bathroom partially dressed. She told Deputies she had been beaten, strangled, and sexually assaulted, by Rush.

She received immediate medical attention at the scene and was transported to local hospital for serious but, believed to be, non-life-threatening injuries.

Spokane Valley Major Crimes Unit Detectives were called to the scene to continue the investigation.

Rush, a convicted felon and a Level 3 Registered Sex Offender from Chelan County, was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Rape 1st Degree and Assault 2nd Degree.

This investigation is ongoing and no additional information is available at this time.

Alert Deputy Intervenes to Stop Suicide Attempt

Sunday evening Deputy Brad Humphrey noticed a suspicious vehicle with a hose attached to the exhaust in a parking lot in Airway Heights. It was determined the adult male inside vehicle was attempting to end his life but thankfully, he was provided the help he desperately needed.
###

On January 14th, 2018 at approximately 6:30 p.m., Deputy Humphrey was driving through the parking lot of the Airway Heights Walmart when his attention was drawn to a vehicle parked on the far west side. As he drove toward the vehicle, he noticed a dryer hose attached to the exhaust pipe which ran into the open trunk.

Deputy Humphrey parked, approached the vehicle an observed and adult male covered with a blanket, reclined back in the driver’s seat. All the windows of the vehicle were rolled up and the rear passenger seat was folded down, exposing the trunk, allowing the exhaust fumes of the running vehicle to enter the passenger compartment.

Deputy Humphrey advised dispatchers of the information and requested assistance. Airway Heights Fire Department and Airway Heights Police Officers (Officer Suniga & Corporal Newman) responded quickly to assist while Deputy Humphrey tried to wake the male.

Several persistent raps on the window, yelling, and the bright beam of a flashlight finally got the attention of the male and he rolled the window down. Deputy Humphrey unlocked and opened the door allowing the exhaust fumes to dissipate. Although conscious, the male was disoriented and was provided medical attention.

After he was taken into protective custody for further treatment, he thanked Deputy Humphrey for contacting him.

This situation could have ended tragically if Deputy Humphrey wouldn’t have noticed the vehicle and contacted this person in crisis. We would like to remind anyone who is feeling depressed and thinking about harming themselves, there is hope and resources to help you.

UPDATE: 2nd Pistol (stolen) and Several Ounces of Meth Located

Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force (SRSSTF) Investigators obtained and executed a search warrant for the Chevy Cavalier, which was seized after this incident.

Investigators located a second loaded handgun and several ounces of Methamphetamine in the passenger compartment where Painter was seated. A check of the Hi Point 9mm pistol revealed it was reported in Spokane as stolen.

This is an active investigation and additional charges are expected.

The Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force is comprised of investigators from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, Spokane Valley Police Department, Spokane Police Department, Washington State Patrol, Washington State Department of Corrections and the FBI. The SRSSTF is a FBI sponsored task force working to alleviate the criminal activities of gangs, violent criminals and upper level drug traffickers.

Minor Traffic Violation Escalates Quickly Due to Passenger

During a traffic stop, Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Deputies implemented safe tactics, teamwork, and the assistance of K9 Bane, to successfully arrest the uncooperative passenger, 31-year-old Michael C. Painter, who was armed with a loaded handgun.
###

On January 14th, 2018 at approximately 8:45 p.m., Deputy Krystal Bitzer noticed a red Chevy Cavalier fail to signal as it turned South on S. Thomas Mallen Rd. from W. 57th Ave. She initiated a traffic stop at S. Thomas Mallen and Silver St. but the driver continued driving slowly on Silver St., stopping in front of multiple homes before pulling back into the lane of travel and continuing eastbound before finally coming to a complete stop.

As Deputy Bitzer approached the vehicle, she observed a temporary license in the back window, which appeared to have been altered by a black marker. She contacted the female driver, identified as 43-year-old Tina M. McCrea, and the male passenger, who was later identified as 31-year-old Michael C. Painter.

McCrea said she didn’t have any paperwork (registration/insurance) for the vehicle or identification on her. She explained she purchased the vehicle two weeks ago but did not have a bill of sale or any documents. A check of McCrea’s name back at Deputy Bitzer’s patrol car revealed McCrea’s driving status was suspended. While checking this information, Deputy Bitzer noticed the passenger reaching around in the vehicle. During the second contact McCrea admitted she knew her driving status was suspended and Painter advised he did not have a valid license either.

Deputy Bitzer waited at her vehicle for additional units to arrive and assist.

When Deputy Veronica Van Patten arrived, Deputy Bitzer arrested McCrea for driving while suspended as Deputy Van Patten approached the vehicle and began to watch Painter. Painter noticed Deputy Van Patten and began reaching around the floorboard of the vehicle. Knowing weapons are commonly kept under seats and other areas where he was reaching, Deputy Van Patten told Painter to stop reaching and to keep his hands visible. Painter, who was sweating profusely, placed his visibly trembling hands in his lap, then began locking the doors of the still running vehicle and started making phone calls.

Painter appeared to be extremely nervous and fail to follow commands. Deputies observed a tattoo on Painter and, with additional information gained, confirmed Painter’s identity. They also learned Painter was known to carry weapons, had an active felony Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC) warrant for his arrest, in addition to a U.S. Marshal’s hold.

Deputies also learned there was a bat next to the driver’s seat and McCrea advised the Deputies they should be “very careful” as they dealt with Painter.

Painter continued to fail to follow commands even after he was told he was under arrest. He said he was calling his attorney but with the erratic behavior, along with all the information learned regarding Painter, Deputies were unsure if his was armed or if he was making calls in an attempt to get people to respond to the scene and assist in his escape.

After several unsuccessful commands to surrender, including K9 warnings advising K9 Bane would be used, Deputy Andrew Richmond deployed less-lethal munitions to break the back-driver’s window. Deputy Clay Hilton sent K9 Bane, who was wearing his Kevlar ballistic vest, to enter the vehicle. The ballistic vest hit the top of the window frame stopping K9 Bane’s momentum and prevented him from making it inside. As K9 Bane attempted a second leap into the vehicle, Painter quickly exited the vehicle and was taken into custody by several awaiting deputies.

As Deputy Schmidt and Deputy Humphrey moved Painter from the ground toward a patrol car for a complete search, Deputy Schmidt felt a handgun concealed inside Painter’s pants and immediately advised Deputy Humphrey and the surrounding Deputies of the weapon while shielding access to it with his hand. Although handcuffed, Painter grabbed for the weapon but he could only grab Deputy Schmidt’s hand instead. Painter was pinned against the hood of a patrol car while other Deputies safely removed the handgun. The handgun, a Glock 22, .40 caliber, had a fully loaded magazine and one round in the chamber. A check of the firearm showed it had not been reported as stolen.

A bag containing a white crystalline substance and a small glass pipe were also located on Painter. The substance showed a presumptive positive result for Methamphetamine.

The Safe Streets Task Force was notified of the arrest and responded to the scene to continue the investigation.

Painter was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for his DOC warrant and the U.S. Marshal’s hold.

This is an active investigation and additional charges are expected.
