Man Stabbed, Slashed In South Park Bar

Police were called to Swedish Hospital on First Hill early this morning after a man walked into the ER with two stab wounds and a gash across his face. The man told police he’d been attacked at a bar in the South Park neighborhood.

Around 11:45 pm Monday night, the victim was at a bar near 14th Avenue S. and S. Donovan Street with a friend, when they saw another man got kicked out of the bar for fighting.

The man came back into the bar, tried to start a fight with the victim—who told police he did not know the man—and pulled out a five-inch knife. The suspect then stabbed the victim in the stomach, and slashed his face.

The victim’s friend chased the suspect out of the bar, but lost the man when he jumped into the passenger seat of a dark-colored sedan, which sped away.

The victim was taken to the hospital by his friend following the attack.
