Man Stabbed at 3rd and James, Police Investigating

A 40-year-old man is recovering from injuries sustained after he was stabbed several times by a suspect earlier Saturday evening.  Officers searched the area but did not locate the suspect.

At 6:30 pm, officers responded to the 500 block of 3rd Avenue for reports of a disturbance.  When officers arrived, they located the victim in the street with his injuries.  Seattle Fire medics responded and transported the man to Harborview Medical Center.

According to witnesses, the male suspect fled on foot eastbound after the assault.  It is believed that the suspect and victim may be familiar with each other. This remains an active and on-going investigation.
