No word of any arrests yet, but the police report “narrative” from the Saturday night North Admiral stabbings is available online. Many details are redacted in the online copy – not just names but some places – which we are denoting below with asterisks. Read on:
Every incidence of asterisks here denotes something, generally a name, that was blacked out in the copy of the police report that was made public. As noted in our previous followup, WSB commenter Bob identified the victims as 25-year-old Zach and 52-year-old Glen. The police report does not leave any information in the blacked-out (redacted) spots indicating which victim was which, in this narrative:
(Victim 1) *** W/M and his friend (Victim 2) W/M *** were walking in *** stated they were approached by three Hispanic males. (Suspect)/1 who was dressed in a black hoodie accused him of being a cop. (Victim) stated vehemently that he was not.
*** then stated that S/1 stabbed him in the lower left chest but he felt like it was a punch. *** then stated to (suspect)/1, “Is that all you got?”
*** then realized that another suspect stabbed his friend *** in the back behind the shoulder blades. S/2 dressed in a light gray athletic shirt also, displayed a silver handgun at the victims. *** and *** then walked to 13– California Av Sw where *** called 911. *** stated
to officers that he did not know if the suspects had left on foot or in a car. Upon arrival of police, *** was found laying on his back where *** was standing up. Both were conscious and talking. *** explained to officers what had happened. He stated that the incident occurred in the park by where citizens view the water. A K9 track was attempted with negative results. A crime scene was not located. (An officer) interviewed two teenagers who were hiding in the wood line. W/2 *** and his girlfriend W/3 W/F/ *** overheard an argument. They heard someone say, “I don’t care if you’re a cop!” They then observed a black SUV possibly an Escalade with 22″ chrome wheels leave in a hurry S/B on California.
W/1 W/F/ approached officers at California Av Sw/Sw Donald St. She stated that she heard a commotion in *** Point around the time the victims’ were stabbed. She then observed two vehicles leaving the park in a hurry heading S/B on California Av Sw. One of them she described as being periwinkle in color and an SUV. A third vehicle was seen leaving the park in a hurry heading N/B on California Av Sw. (A homicide detective was called) and he declined to come to the scene. Both victims were transported to Harborview Medical Center where *** underwent surgery successfully. Both are expected to recover from their injuries. *** became uncooperative with officers at the hospital. Pictures were taken of where the victims ended up. Their shirts were taken and submitted into evidence.
In another comment today, Bob updated the victims’ condition: “One of the men is home after being under observation until Sunday evening. Evidently, the knife the punk used on him struck a rib, which kept it from damaging a lung. Glen is very sore, but suprisingly nimble. He was taking out the garbage when I saw him last night. I think he may regret it today. Zach was more severely injured, there appear to be complications, so he isn’t expected to be discharged for a few days. I spoke to him on the phone, and I all I can say for sure is, he really wants to get home.”
