Patrol officers were called to a residence in the neighborhood East of the 12100 block of 51st AVE NE after a 911 caller advised that their friend had been stabbed with a large kitchen knife. Multiple callers in the area called 911, seeing the suspect outside with bloody hands.
Officers quickly arrived on scene and immediately provided first aid to the victim who was losing consciousness. An officer applied a tourniquet to the victim’s arm, which successfully prevented further blood loss.
Officers contained the area and requested the assistance of a Police K-9. Lynnwood PD K-9 arrived on scene and began tracking the suspect. Eventually, the suspect was located knocking on the door of a nearby residence. Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office K-9 was near this location and assisted officers with taking the suspect into custody.
Preliminary information is that the victim, a male in his late 60s, was known to the suspect. The victim was stabbed upwards of 10 times. Marysville Fire Medics transported the victim to Providence Medical Center, where he is currently in surgery.
