I was really hoping that we’d get through March without any major assaults in our area. Unfortunately, we didn’t quite make it, with a man currently in Harborview in serious condition after being the victim of a
knife assault shooting overnight.
Early this morning, at around 3:30am, a Seattle Police officer was driving down 12th Ave when he was flagged down by a man near the intersection of 12th & Main, in the area approaching Little Saigon. The officer quickly found that the man was suffering from a
stab gunshot wound to the torso. The victim told the officer that he had been stabbed shot by another man in the wooded area near I-90 known as “The Jungle”. The steep hillside there has for a long time been the site of various transient camps and has seen its fair share of crime and tragedy.
Note that 12th & Main is a good 3 or 4 blocks from the area where the victim was
stabbed shot. One can only guess that he was trying to make his way up the hill towards the hospitals for help.
The victim was taken by paramedics to Harborview in serious condition. A full investigation is underway, but so far no further information is currently available on possible suspects in the assault.
