Street brawl in Belltown ends in minor stabbing

A man was hospitalized early this morning after a stabbing in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.

A Seattle police office encountered the injured man when he pulled up to two men fighting on a sidewalk near the southwest corner of Third Avenue and Bell Street.  As the officer pulled up, the two subjects separated.

Medics were called and found that a 45-year-old man suffered two non-life-threatening puncture wounds, police spokesman Jeff Kappel wrote in a news release. The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

The suspect, described as a man in his 20s, had a bloody face from the fight. He, too, was hospitalized, police said.

While police did not recover a knife, a witness told officers that they saw a third man walking away from the fight. Police said they are searching for that man to see if he has the knife.
