Man Stabbed At Dog Park On Capitol Hill

We know we said the last post was the last SPD Blotter item from the weekend, but that was a lie.

On September 18th at 8:35 p.m. officers responded to an area hospital to contact an assault victim with a knife wound.  During the investigation officers determined the stabbing assault occurred at Minor Avenue and Pine Street.

The victim stated that he was walking past the dog park.  An adult male suspect asked him for some money.  The victim told the suspect that he didn’t have any money.  The suspect then “punched” the victim in the chest.  The victim thought that he had only been punched, but a short time later he realized that he had been cut and stabbed as well.

The victim sustained a non-life-threatening 1-inch deep, 4-inch long knife wound to the chest.  He made his way to the hospital where officers interviewed him about the incident.

The suspect, who remains at large, is described as a Native American or Hispanic male in his 20′s, 5’6″ tall and 180 lbs.

We’re working on a couple of non-Blotter-related items for you, while recovering from an exhausting weekend so bear with us.
