Detectives are investigating after a man was stabbed in the chest outside a lower Queen Anne restaurant early Friday morning.
Officers responded to the 500 block of Queen Anne Avenue North just after 2 a.m. for a report of man who had been stabbed in the chest. Officers quickly arrived and found the 26-year-old victim with serious injuries and immediately began to perform first aid. Seattle Fire Department Medics arrived and took the man to Harborview Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.
Witnesses said the suspect, in an unprovoked attack, came across the street and plunged a large knife into the victim’s chest. The suspect then walked away from the scene. Officers were able to take the 38-year-old suspect into custody without further incident. Officers searched the suspect and were able to recover what they believe to be the weapon involved in the attack.
Detectives booked the suspect into King County Jail for investigation of murder. Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the Seattle Police Homicide Unit at 206-684-5550 or call 206-233-TIPS
