Pasco Police investigating after two men are stabbed

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: PPD is saying that Aaron Mikel Scott is responsible for the stabbing of Kelly Joe Ragsdale who is in satisfactory condition at Kadlec Medical Center. Scott also suffered minor injuries.

However, police say that the two men were trespassing on the property where the incident happened. The owner of the home has been gone for months, even up to a year, leaving the home boarded up and padlocked.

We also spoke with neighbors, who tell us that despite the home's desertion, they've seen a lot of activity in and out of the house from one man in particular.

"Stuff's always happening," said Jose Cachua, who lives across the street, "A car or two comes in and out… Just comes in for a few minutes and then it's out. "

Another neighbor says that she saw the lights in the house come on just a few days ago.

Right now, police believe both men involved in the stabbing had used the house in some capacity.


PASCO, WA - Right now, Pasco Police are investigating a stabbing that happened this afternoon.

Pasco Police received a phone call from a man on the 500 block of S. Sycamore Avenue saying that he'd been stabbed. When officers got to the scene, they found two stabbing victims in serious condition.

"At this point we're gonna secure the house, get a warrant to search the house," said Sergeant Brad Gregory with PPD. "We've cleared the house; there's no one else inside. Investigation follows."
