Woman stabbed by friend, suspect arrested outside hospital

Seattle Police are reporting they’ve apprehended a suspect in an early morning stabbing:

A 42-year-old woman is in custody following a stabbing early this morning in the Central District.  The 24-year-old female victim was taken to Swedish First Hill by a male friend.

At about 5:30 this morning, East Precinct officers responded to the Swedish First Hill campus after receiving a call that a stabbing victim had just shown up.  Officers arrived and determined the following information:

The victim, suspect and a friend (all acquaintances) were in the 700 Block of 18th Avenue.  The suspect and victim were in an argument when the suspect stabbed the victim with an unknown object.  The male friend placed the victim in his truck intending to drive her to the hospital.  The suspect also jumped into the truck with the man and the victim.

All three arrived at Swedish First Hill.  Staff at Swedish called 911 to report the stabbing.  Officers arrived, and contacted the suspect and witness outside the hospital.  The suspect was taken into custody.  The victim was later transported to Harborview Medical Center from Swedish for further treatment.  The victim remains hospitalized.

The suspect is being interviewed by detectives and will be booked into the King County Jail later this morning.

  1. this kind of thing happens to me all the time. one minute i’m hanging out with friends on the corner, next minute we start stabbing each other. somebody is always getting all cut up. no big deal. we just go in and get sewn up. next week we’ll all be on the corner sneaking a can of beer and looking at stabbing each other. that’s what friends do.

    • of course, nothin to see here move along, just a normal day in the CD containment zone. Do not bother to see how the rest of Seattle lives, all the same……..

  2. I saw police talking to a woman around 4:30 pm today on 25th Ave, on the corner of Union St. Is it known if these are connected? With all the arsons recently it’s hard to know what to expect.

  3. Anyone know why there were patrol cars parked at the end of every street (they may or may not have been blocked) along Union and Jefferson between 23rd and 18th last Friday August 23rd from around 10:00 pm – (?) There was a helicopter circling the area as well.
