Seattle Police responded to a report of a stabbing just before 10 p.m. Wednesday in the 9700 block of Greenwood Avenue North.
A woman called 911 to report that two of her friends had been stabbed. North Precinct Officers found one man with a nick on his face and a second man who had been stabbed in the upper back.
Police spokesman Officer Mark Jamieson says the suspect knocked on the woman’s door and told her to come out. A man at the home told the suspect she wouldn’t come out, and tried to close the door. The suspect reached in with a small knife or other sharp implement and nicked the man on his cheek. That victim was able to close the door. He heard banging on the door, then it was quiet.
Moments later, another man – friends of the man and woman inside – knocked on the door and said he had just been stabbed. That friend had been outside and heard the commotion and came up to see what was happening.
The stabbing victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center. Officer Jamieson said the wound did not appear to be life threatening.
The suspect fled, but officers know the suspect’s street nickname.
“We believe we have some good information on who the suspect is, however, at the time the report was written, the suspect was not in custody,” Jamieson said.
