Help Detectives Find the Man Wanted For Knife Attack At Roosevelt Bar

Detectives need the public’s help finding a suspect who slashed a man at a restaurant in the Roosevelt neighborhood earlier this month.

Around 1:15 am on August 2nd, the suspect started causing problems inside the Scarlet Tree restaurant, located near 8th Avenue NE and NE 65th Street.

Bar staff refused to serve the suspect after he got into an argument with a DJ, and when a doorman tried to escort the suspect out of the bar, he began throwing punches and shoving other customers.

The suspect then pulled out a knife and slashed a 28-year-old man, leaving him with a 9 or 10 inch knife wound across his stomach.

If you recognize the suspect—seen talking to a bartender in the video—please contact the SPD tip line at (206) 233-5000.
