WSU assault victim moved to care facility

A Washington State University instructor who was the victim of an assault last month has left a Spokane hospital and has been transferred to a long-term care facility in Post Falls.

David Warner was discharged from Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center last week.

Warner, an instructor in the Department of Critical Culture, Gender and Race Studies, suffered severe head injuries as he attempted to break up a fight outside a College Hill bar on March 30. His condition has since improved, although his status at the North Idaho Advanced Care Hospital is unknown.

Pullman police continue to investigate the assault.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the incident. Three men face charges of first-degree assault, while a woman was charged with rendering criminal assistance and making false statements.

All four were released on their own recognizance.
