Woman Fatally Stabbed In North Seattle

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee December 5, 2011

Today in Fuzz: Woman killed, fiance injured in North Seattle stabbing; man stabbed in McDonald's drive through; and women stabbed in home invasion in North Seattle.

1) A 47-year-old woman was killed in a stabbing at a North Seattle condo complex early Saturday morning.

According to Seattle police, officers responded to a report of a man calling for help outside his condo at 135th and Linden Ave. N. around 1:30 am.

When officers arrived, they found a 52-year-old man, who had been stabbed several times. The man told police his fiance was still inside the condo.

Police entered the home and found the woman, who died at the scene.

Officers arrested a 51-year-old suspect near the scene and booked him into jail for murder.

Police say the victims both knew the suspect, but could not provide details about what led to the stabbing.

UPDATE: Police records say the suspect arrested by police is a roommate with the two victims. Police arrested the man after he flagged down officers patrolling the area following the stabbing, and surrendered himself.

Police documents say the man was covered in blood, and identified himself as the roommate of the victims.

2) Two women were stabbed in a home invasion robbery in North Seattle Sunday night. Just before midnight, someone knocked on the door of a home on 22nd Ave. and NE 88th St before two men and a women burst into the home through an unlocked door.

Police say the suspects asked the victims for drugs, and then stabbed the women.

Both women were taken to Harborview. Robbery detectives are investigating the case.

3) Never mess with a man on a scooter, for he has something to prove. One hooligan learned that lesson the hard way this weekend after he picked a fight with the wrong scooterer at a McDonald's drive-through in Northgate.

Police say the suspect and several of his friends were picking fights and kicking cars in the parking lot, when the suspect approached a man on a scooter. The man on the scooter told the suspect to get away from him or he would "get cut," according to police, and when the suspect kept coming at the man on the scooter, the man stabbed the suspect.

Police reviewed surveillance footage of the incident and let the man on the scooter go after determining he'd stabbed the suspect in self-defense.
