PORT ANGELES — The Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office will not charge a Port Angeles man in an alleged stabbing because the purported victim has not been found.

Scott Allan Schroeder, 25, was released from the Clallam County jail after he was booked Jan. 22 for investigation of one count of first-degree assault.

Police arrested Schroeder at a residence in the 53000 block of state Highway 112 after an investigation into a stabbing that reportedly took place the night before.

Police were not able to find the man thought to be the victim, who police said they had been told had been stabbed three times in the torso.

According to police reports, Schroeder got into an argument with the alleged victim over a jacket at a house in the 100 block of Spruce Street.

He allegedly stabbed the man and reported the fight to the resident of an apartment on West Lauridsen Boulevard.

The apartment resident then called police, but Schroeder had left before police arrived, police said.

Witnesses to the stabbing told police the alleged victim started the fight with Schroeder, according to the police report.
