Suspect Arrested After Man Stabbed at Encampment

Police arrested a 35-year-old man in North Seattle on Sunday after he stabbed another man at an encampment.

Around 6:30 PM, officers were called to 107th Street and Corliss Avenue North, where they found the victim, a 46-year-old man, with stab wounds to his hands and arm.

The victim told police the suspect had come to his tent, and threatened him with a large knife and handgun. The two men had reportedly been in a dispute involving a woman.

The suspect stabbed the victim and left the scene, fleeing to an apartment two blocks away.

Officers went to the apartment, but the man initially refused to come out. SWAT and negotiators were called to the scene and the man was eventually taken into custody.

Police booked the 35-year-old into the King County Jail for assault.
