Stabbing in Ballard

On February 9th at approximately 10:54 p.m. officers responded to  the area of 22nd Avenue NW and NW Market Street for the report of a stabbing.  Officers located two adult male victims who had both sustained non-life-threatening injuries from what is believed to be a knife assault. 

Victim #1, a 51-year-old male, sustained a stab wound to the abdomen.  The specifics of victim #2’s injuries are unknown at this time.  Both victims were treated by SFD medics at the scene and subsequently transported to area hospitals for follow up treatment.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the assault actually occurred about one block south of where the victims were located, possibly in a park.  One victim had a speech disability preventing him from providing officers with any information and the other victim was uncooperative with investigating officers.  We therefore have no additional details and no suspect information.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
