Man Wounded In University District Stabbing

One man was stabbed following a domestic disturbance Tuesday night in the University District.

At about 6:30 pm, officers found the victim—who was quite intoxicated, had two stab wounds between his shoulder blades—at a bus stop at NE 47th Street and 7th Avenue NE.

Several people at the scene gave police conflicting stories about what had led to the stabbing, but officers determined the victim had been involved in an altercation with another man at a home near the scene.

Medics transported the victim to Harborview, but he decided he didn’t want to stick around for treatment and walked out of the hospital. Officers and Harborview staff were able to convince the man to return to the hospital and allow doctors to patch up his wounds.

The victim would provide officers with information about the man who stabbed him, but officers were able to identify a suspect in the case.
