Database error leads to stabbing suspect’s release

Donald Dale Leif Crow

A suspect in a Bridgeport area stabbing is at-large after a mix-up led to his release from the Sunnyside jail.

23 year old Donald Dale Leif Crow of Manson is suspected in the September 24th stabbing of a 21 year old man who suffered life threatening wounds.  Douglas County Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal said Crow had been jailed after a traffic stop near Toppenish but there were no warrants for his arrest at the time.  However Douglas County deputies had sent a probable cause statement to the Sunnyside jail requesting Crow be detained. Gjesdal said jail officials mistakenly did not enter the request in their database and Crow was released the next day after his court appearance for driving with a suspended license.

Crow has since been charged with first degree assault and an arrest warrant was issued.

Crow is described as American Indian, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 167 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
