Detectives Investigating Tuesday Morning First Hill Stabbing

Detectives are investigating a Tuesday morning stabbing in First Hill involving two nude men.

At 8:11 a.m., a 911 caller reported a disturbance in an apartment building in the 400 block of Terry Avenue. Shortly after, multiple callers reported two naked men running westbound on Jefferson Street from Terry Avenue. One of the men was bleeding significantly, and the other appeared to be chasing him with scissors. The victim ran to the emergency room entrance of Harborview Medical Center and was treated for multiple stab wounds.

The suspect was found less than a block away with a severe cut to his neck. Officers immediately began first aid as the man was bleeding profusely. Seattle Fire Department Medics responded and transported the man to HMC in stable condition.

The circumstances leading up to the stabbing are still under investigation.
