West Seattle Crime Watch: Man stabbed, but not seriously hurt

August 5, 2010 at 7:24 am | In Crime, Delridge, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Just got a little more information on a police/fire “assault with weapons” call early this morning in the 8800 block of 16th SW (map). Scanner traffic at the time, just before 2 am, did not suggest a suspect on the loose, and no details were available then, but we have some now: Det. Mark Jamieson in the SPD media unit tells WSB that police were called about a “disturbance” described as a “loud verbal argument”; then a second call mentioned an “intoxicated” man with a knife outside, “screaming.” Turned out one man had been stabbed in the upper back and arm, resulting in what were called “superficial wounds,” and the suspect was quickly arrested; scanner traffic during the call suggested the suspect might also have had some kind of injury, but Det. Jamieson is still checking on that. 9:54 AM UPDATE: A few more details – the victim is 46; the suspect, 28, and was indeed taken to the hospital for “facial and head wounds” – he is under guard there but once released, Det. Jamieson says, will be booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault and harassment.


  1. Awesome, that’s my corner. Glad they got him.

  2. Anyone have information on the large police response plus 2 ambulances and a fire truck that shut down Delridge (4700 block) last night around 11pm? The police were redirecting traffic both directions there for over half an hour.

  3. Hadn’t heard that it shut down the street. However, it was on 911 only as a “medic response”; a scanner call at the time discussed someone “tripping out on sherm,” per a tipster who was listening. The early online lists don’t indicate a police report having been filed – TR

  5. That’s on my block. Ugh. I heard a bunch of screaming and then shortly thereafter a firetruck. Thanks for reporting so quickly. I was wondering what was going on.
