Police Investigating International District Stabbing

Seattle police are investigating after a 29-year-old man told officers he was injured Thursday by a knife-throwing assailant in the International District.

Just before 3:30 PM, the victim was involved in an altercation with three or four other men in a parking lot near 12th Avenue S. and S. Weller Street.

The man told police one of the suspects threw a knife at him, striking the victim in the back. The victim didn’t provide officers with many details about the suspects.

Employees at a nearby medical facility helped treat the victim at the scene before medics transported the 29-year-old man to Harborview with non-life-threatening injuries.
