A 55-year-old suspect in the stabbing of two people in a Starbucks coffee shop drive-thru at one of the busiest intersections in Clark County may have been motivated by religious extremism, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Scott C. Fandrich of Ridgefield appeared Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of two counts of first-degree assault.

Judge Barbara Johnson set bail at $500,000. Fandrich is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges March 22. Vancouver attorney Jack “John” Peterson was appointed to defend him.

Fandrich wore an orange jumpsuit and limped into the courtroom. In a low voice, he mumbled answers to questions from Senior Deputy Prosecutor Camara Banfield.

Fandrich is accused of attacking Jerry Kush, who is either 70 or 71, just before 5 p.m. in the Starbucks drive-thru at 11502 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd., in Cascade Park, after the two had a conversation about religion, according to court records.

The affidavit said:

Hamza A. Shariati, 21, told police that he had met Fandrich at about 2 p.m. Monday to discuss religion. During their conversation at one of the cafe’s tables, Kush approached and chatted with Fandrich about cars and religion.

When Kush got up and left, Fandrich followed him out of the building, Shariati said. Then, Shariati said, he heard sirens.

Shariati told police that Fandrich had made statements in the past about “his willingness to die for Islam.” He said he knows that Fandrich “has conflicts with people.”

Kush was stabbed at least five times in the neck, abdomen and the side of the chest and had to undergo emergency surgery Monday night at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.

Bystanders tried to intervene and stop Fandrich, according to earlier reports by The Columbian. One of them, Jerry Nehnevaj, 49, was stabbed in the right lower leg when he attempted to grab Fandrich and pull him off of Kush, according to the affidavit.

Nehnevaj was transported to PeaceHealth, treated and released.

Court records give an account by multiple witnesses:

Nehnevaj told police that he came to Kush’s assistance after he heard a woman screaming, “‘Help, he’s got a knife.’”

Another bystander, Randall S. Douglas, 58, stomped on Fandrich’s arm, causing him to drop the knife. Meanwhile, a crowd had gathered around the scene. Fandrich then picked up the knife and started to walk toward a van. The crowd pursued him. One of the bystanders had obtained a shovel and “wield(ed)” it to persuade the suspect to stay put until police arrived.

 A shovel. In the near future thanks to liberal/leftist Democrats and a growing number of Republicans, American citizens will be disarmed and only able to defend themselves and their fellow citizens with items on hand.

    Get Islam out of America! There are NO American Muslims – only Muslims occupying America.


  2. PLEASE NOTE: The “suspect” (ACTUALLY THERE’S NO SUSPICION ABOUT IT–HE’S GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY!) is over 50 years old and has a very American sounding name. Clearly he’s a CONVERT to islam–highly unlikely that he grew up as a muslim! But somewhere along the line he had a LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE which influenced him to convert!


    ‘NUFF SAID!!!!!

  3. P.S. You will note further that the words “islam” and “muslim” absolutely NEVER NEVER NEVER are CAPITALIZED in my blogs! Trust me, that’s no oversight on my part! THAT’S BECAUSE the devil and satan don’t deserve any RECOGNITION OR RESPECT!!!!!

    AND islam PURELY IS satanic!!!!! IN FACT, EVERYWHERE THAT THE WORDS “islam” and “muslim” ARE USED YOU COULD RIGHTLY SUBSTITUTE THE WORDS “the devil” “satan” and “ignorance”.


  4. Learn how to protect yourselves in armed and unarmed combat. Find a good martial arts school. Start today.
    Obviously, given the rate, degree and scope of infection, things like this can happen anywhere and any time.

  5. I like the fact that bystanders became involved–there’s hope yet for America. In Europe bystanders do just that, stare, and walk away.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
