Suspect arrested in Capitol Hill robbery, stabbing

A 22-year-old man was stabbed on Capitol Hill early this morning and a suspect was arrested a short time later, according to Seattle Police.

Police Detective Mark Jamieson said that about 12:20 a.m., the vicitim approached two East Precinct officers in the 1700 Block of Summit Avenue and told them that he had just been stabbed.

The victim, who had a small puncture wound to his upper chest, told officers that he was “jumped” by several men, and that they took his backpack and stabbed him.

The victim said he knew the main suspect from the streets, and gave officers a description and told them where the suspect often hangs out.

Officers went to that location and found a 21-year-old man carrying the victim’s backpack.  He was arrested and later booked into the King County Jail for investigation of robbery.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of a puncture wound and lacerations to his hands.  The injuries are not life threatening.
