A 22-year-old female is recovering at the hospital after she was stabbed several times by a female acquaintance last night at a North Seattle motel. The suspect fled the scene but investigators know her identity.
On Tuesday, October 4th at about 6:30 pm officers responded to a report of a stabbing at a motel in the 8800 block of Aurora Avenue North. Officers found a 22-year-old woman inside one of the rooms bleeding from stab wounds to her upper arms and thigh. Officers provided first aid until the Seattle Fire Department arrived and transported the victim to the hospital. Prior to being transported, the victim told officers the name of the person who stabbed her.
Officers interviewed a number of witnesses and searched the area, but did not locate the suspect. Witnesses stated that prior to the stabbing, the two women were arguing over something in the parking lot. It was unclear what the argument was about.
Detectives will be handling the follow up investigation.
