PULLMAN, Wash. —

Pullman, Wash., police say they're still trying to locate two young men sought in a March 30 attack on a WSU instructor.

Police Chief Gary Jenkins said late Thursday in a statement that detectives had traveled to Western Washington, where the two had agreed to surrender but neither showed up at the Mukilteo Police Department near Everett.

Jenkins says 22-year-old Robert Bean of Mukilteo and 22-year-old John "Matt" Cabanos-Soriano of Everett are sought for investigation of first-degree assault.

The condition of the injured man, David Warner, has been upgraded from critical to serious. He continues to recover at a Spokane hospital.

Earlier Thursday, a judge ordered a 23-year-old Washington State University student released on his own recognizance.

Joshua Nantz spent a night in jail after he was arrested Wednesday for investigation of first-degree assault. Police also arrested a young woman accused of rendering criminal assistance.

Jenkins says neither Bean nor Cabanos-Soriano is believed to be a WSU student but they are acquainted with Nantz and the young woman.

Police say Warner received severe head injuries after he tried to break up a fight.
