Man said he was stabbed after refusing to lend cell phone

There is not points to locate on the map

A man was stabbed in the abdomen in downtown Seattle early this morning apparently for telling another man he couldn’t borrow his cell phone.

Police and medics were called to Third Avenue and University Street at 12:46 a.m. on a report that someone had been stabbed. It appears the man did not suffer life-threatening injuries, authorities said. The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

“The victim was vague and somewhat uncooperative,” said SeattleĀ police spokesman Mark Jamieson said. “He said he was asked by an unknown male if he would let him use his cell phone. He said he was out of minutes and was subsequently stabbed.”

Jamieson said that the man declined to talk to police any further. No arrests have been made.
