Walla Walla teens injured in Kennewick stabbings


KENNEWICK — Three men have been arrested in connection with a stabbing incident early Saturday in Kennewick that sent two Walla Walla teens to the hospital.

Abram Alaniz, 21, and Jacob Alaniz, 24, of Kennewick, and Franklin Parada, 20, of Pasco, were booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of first-degree assault and first-degree burglary, a Kennewick police news release said.

Police are seeking information on a fourth suspect.

The two victims — 17- and 19-year-old males from Walla Walla — were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police reported.

They were inside an apartment when multiple people forced open the door and a fight ensued in which the victims were stabbed, the news release said.

Police responded and stopped a vehicle leaving the area, detaining multiple people. Police also found a handgun that had been thrown from the vehicle, the news release said.
