The 22-year-old is accused of second-degree assault, stemming from a what Pullman police call a “citizen dispute.” Strong maintains he acted in self-defense.
Jenkins said they identified a suspect that was with Strong the night of the assault, saying he is also a Griz football player, but would not release the name of the player.
Jenkins said the investigation is taking longer because they are interviewing witnesses in Montana and Washington. He said the University of Montana police department is assisting with the witness interviews.
Jenkins hopes to have an update on the case later this week.
