There is not points to locate on the map

A Seattle woman was arrested late last night after she allegedly stabbed her 69-year-old mother, police said.

Police responded to a home in the 4200 block of 47th Avenue South at 11:41 p.m. after receiving a 911 call of a stabbing. Responding officers found the victim with numerous stab wounds to her body. Seattle Fire Department medics treated the woman at the scene before taking her to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

Family members told police that earlier in the evening the victim had attempted to calm her daughter while the younger woman was having some sort of “mental episode.” At some point the two scuffled and the daughter grabbed a knife, chased down her mother and stabbed her, police said.

The daughter, a woman in her 20s, was arrested. Police planned to book her into jail for investigation of domestic violence assault.
