WestSeattleBlog and CHS had exchanged tweets about this “Assault w/ Weapons” that showed up on the 911 page at 11:44am today. We dug into it in the scanner recordings and found that a man was stabbed in the neck by another man in an attempted robbery. It happened in front of the Key Bank at Madison & Summit, and was reported by an anonymous 911 caller who described the suspect as a white male with a long brown pony tail, a white t-shirt, and who was carrying a jacket over his arm.
Police responded with a couple of minutes but couldn’t find any sign of either the suspect or a victim. But evidently the victim took advantage of the fact that he was across the street from a major hospital complex, and he was found by police in the Swedish ER just ten minutes later. His injury was described as non-life-threatening.
An somewhat uncooperative witness at the scene told police that the suspect was last seen walking northbound on Summit.
