A man suffered life-threatening wounds when he was stabbed several times last night in downtown Seattle, police said.

Police responded to a call at 9:25 p.m. and found the injured 34-year-old man in the 200 block of Second Avenue Extension South. Due to wounds to his neck, the man was unable to communicate well with officers, according to police.

Fire Department medics found several more stab wounds after the victim’s clothing had been cut off, the most critical of which was at the base of the neck, behind the right clavicle, police said. The medics took the man to Harborview Medical Center.

Police said they have only a vague description of the suspect(s).
