Boris held on $500,000 bail

Kennewick man jailed in Spokane Valley rape case

SPOKANE VALLEY — A Kennewick man arrested for in a sexual assault case here remains in the Spokane County Jail.

Gregory Charles Boris, 42, of Kennewick, is being held on $500,000 bail after being extradited from the Tri-Cities area back to Spokane County on Feb. 13. He is charged with second-degree rape, second-degree assault-strangulation with sexual motivation and felony harassment-threats to kill.

The charges stem from an alleged Feb. 5 rape at a hotel here.

Records show law enforcement officers were dispatched to a store near the intersection of Sprague and Pines Avenues at about 11:20 p.m. Feb. 5 after a woman entered and told employees she had been raped.

The suspect — identified as Boris —had been friends with the victim for more than a year, records show. Law enforcement officers couldn’t locate him here, so they obtained an arrest warrant.

On Feb. 12, Boris was arrested in Kennewick and extradited to Spokane County the next day.
