Man hospitalized, two others arrested in assault


WALLA WALLA -- City police arrested Tyler Walters, 25, of 571 Ash St., and Dustin Lefore, 26, of 574 Ash St., on investigation of second-degree assault after a fracas early Friday that sent an unnamed man to the hospital.

According to probable cause affidavits entered into court Monday, Walters and Lefore attacked the victim during a dispute at the victim's residence at 1501 W. Rose St. The victim's girlfriend identified Walters and Lefore and stated the argument began when her boyfriend asked Walters and his unnamed girlfriend to leave his apartment, records show.

According the documents filed by police in court, the victim was not able to stand on his own when they arrived on scene, and he apparently suffered facial fractures below his left eye. He was taken to Providence St. Mary Medical Center.

Walters and Lefore are being held on $25,000 bail in the Walla Walla County Jail.
