Stabbing Suspect Arrested After Drinks Turn into an Assault 

Seattle Police responded to a report of a man stabbed early Saturday morning in the Beacon Hill neighborhood.  

Officers arrived just after 03:00 a.m. in the 3900 block of 15th Avenue South and found a man with several non-life-threatening stab wounds to his upper torso. Police provided medical aid to the 27-year-old male victim until Seattle Fire Department arrived and took over medical care. SFD later transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center. 

The victim reported he was having drinks with a known group of men, when he and the 32-year-old male suspect began arguing. These men later observed the victim running away from the suspect who chased after him.  

Soon after a community member walking in the area heard someone moaning and found the victim with multiple stab wounds in a neighbor’s backyard. 

While officers were conducting the investigation, Edmonds Police Department reported a man arrived at Swedish Edmonds Hospital reporting he was stabbed near 3900 block of 15th Avenue South. Officers confirmed this man was the suspect identified by the victim. 

The suspect was arrested for assault and will be booked into King County Jail after being medically cleared.  

Thank you to the Edmonds Police Department for assisting in this case.
