Stabbing on Capitol Hill, suspect in custody

On July 31st, at approximately 2:45 AM, East Precinct officers responded to a call of a stabbing in the 1700 Block of Bellevue Avenue.  Apparently, the male suspect and victims are all acquaintances.  All were drinking inside the residence.  The suspect and the male victim got into an argument.  The argument escalated and the suspect stated that he was going to stab the man.  He used a kitchen knife to cut/stab the victim in the left side of his neck.  The other victim, a female, attempted to break up the fight and she sustained a blow to the jaw area, as well as an injury to her hand.  Officers contacted all the parties involved and took the suspect into custody without incident.  Seattle Fire Department responded and treated the victim at the scene.  He was later transported to Harborview Medical Center with a non life-threatening injury.  The 30 year old suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault.
