On 10-12-2021 at 0037 hours, officers and Seattle Fire responded to Kaiser Urgent Care 1501 E Thomas St where a 19 y/o male had been brought in with multiple stab wounds. Officers arrived and attempted to interview the subject, but his mother interjected and prevented them from contacting him. The mother then told officers a brief chain of events and refused to identify herself. Seattle Fire transported the subject to Harborview Medical Center (HMC) in stable condition. Once at HMC, officers were able to interview the adult victim without the mother present. South Precinct attempted to locate a possible scene but were unable to.
