Man stabbed near Kinnear Park

On November 25th shortly after 11:00 P.M.,  Seattle Police officers observed a  male staggering in the middle of the street in the 650 block of Elliott Avenue West. Officers made contact with the male and discovered he had multiple stab wounds to the chest and back. Seattle Fire arrived and transported the male to Harborview Medical Center. A witness stated that the victim  had walked down West Mercer Place like he had come out of Kinnear Park. An extensive area check of the park was done by officers, but no one was located in the park.  At the hospital,  officers were able to speak with the victim. The victim stated he was with a group of three or four males, when one of the males began arguing with him.  That suspect then stabbed the victim.  The victim only gave very vague descriptions of the suspects.  The injuries are not considered life-threatening, and the incident is still being investigated.
