Suspect Detained After Woman is Assaulted

A female suspect was contacted by officers and detained.  She is currently being interviewed by detectives.

Just before 3:30 pm on Sunday afternoon,  officers responded to a report of a attack with a knife inside a residential facility in the 200 block of Pontius Avenue North.  The initial report was of a woman who had received a cut to her neck while inside the building after being assaulted by an unknown person.  Seattle Fire personnel transported the female victim to Harborview Medical Center where she is undergoing treatment.  Officers developed a suspect description and about an hour later located the female suspect a few blocks away.  The suspect was taken into custody and is currently being interviewed by detectives.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
