PULLMAN—A man accused of robbing a Pullman couple at knifepoint in August on a walking path has been arrested after being identified violating a no-contact order.

According to a report, Pullman Police received a call from a man and woman Aug. 20 at approximately 1:30 a.m. about a sale of items that had allegedly ended in Daniel Pils robbing them of a tablet, cell phone and tent. The couple alleged Pils used a bowie knife during the robbery.

After the alleged robbery, Pils, 34, was arrested after he was identified violating a no-contact order. The reporting party was able to identify the vehicle enough that police were able to stop it and arrest him.

According to the report, Pils told officers the meeting with the Pullman couple had arranged for him to give them methamphetamine. Pils had received $100 from the man to purchase .4 grams of methamphetamine and was able to buy .8 grams with the money. He gave the alleged robbery victim the .4 grams he had requested and the man had become upset upon discovering Pils had .8 grams. According to the report, Pils admitted to hitting the man after he tried to hit Pils with a large flashlight, but claimed to have not taken any items.

Pils was booked into Whitman County Jail Sept. 4 on violating the no-contact order, second degree assault, robbery and two warrants related to a domestic violence case in 2018. Bail was set at $10,000 cash or $100,000 surety.
