West Seattle Crime Watch: Stabbing suspect to be evaluated

Following up on the High Point stabbing almost three weeks ago: The man who’s been in jail since then, in lieu of $1 million bail, 22-year-old Marcus Combs, was supposed to be in court this morning to enter a plea to the charge of first-degree assault, but instead, his arraignment was postponed until May 26th. According to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, “Combs will undergo a 15-day mental evaluation to determine his competency to stand trial.” The victim, a 40-year-old woman whom investigators say was attacked randomly while walking with her 9-year-old, has been recovering at home since the day after the attack.

    I have known marcus for years and honestly I knew there was something off he was always a nice kid but this proves my feeling all along. I hope he gets the help he deserves and needs very bad! My prayers go out to the victims family as well poor little girl has the picture of her mom being stabbed over and over again in her head and she has to live with that.

Sorry, comment time is over.
