One Wounded, One Arrested After Monday Evening Pioneer Square Stabbing

One man was wounded and another is in custody after a stabbing in the Pioneer Square neighborhood Monday evening.

At 6:21 p.m., a 911 caller reported two men in a physical fight at 3rd Avenue and Yesler Way. As officers were en route, another caller reported one of the men had been stabbed.

Arriving officers began providing aid to the victim, who had multiple stab wounds. Seattle Fire Department medics began additional treatment when they arrived, and eventually transported the 51-year-old victim to Harborview Medical Center in serious condition.

Meanwhile, other officers arrested the suspect a block away and recovered a knife at the scene.

The 38-year-old suspect will be booked into King County Jail for first-degree assault.
