Stabbing in North Seattle
On February 19th at approximately 7:43 p.m. two adult male suspects were breaking into an Infiniti coupe near the corner of NE 77th Street and 16th Avenue NE. The vehicle’s owner, an adult male in his 40’s, interrupted the crime in progress and was subsequently attacked and stabbed by the suspects. The suspects then fled the scene in a Ford Explorer that has been described as either gray, light blue or green. The suspects, who remain at large, were described as white males with long hair.
The victim sustained at least two stab wounds to his lower torso. He was treated at the scene by SFD medics and transported to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police immediately and refer to this incident.
