Detectives search along I-5 for knife used in stabbing

Detectives searched an area along Interstate 5 in South King County over the weekend, looking unsuccessfully for a knife used in the stabbing Saturday of a 20-year-old man who was seriously wounded.

A 33-year-old Seattle man was arrested in connection with the stabbing.

Deputies were called Saturday morning to the 13200 block of Second Avenue South in Burien, where they found a man with a stab wound to his stomach had knocked on a door, the Sheriff’s Office said Sunday.

Detectives determined the man had been at a gathering at a nearby house the previous night and early morning hours. He was stabbed during an altercation with another man at the house, then walked away and passed out on the street, the Sheriff’s Office said.

About 7 a.m, the man awakened, staggered to a nearby house and knocked on the door, where the resident called 911, the Sheriff’s Office said. The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life-threatening injuries.

Detectives arrested the Seattle man, who was booked into the King County Jail. They learned the knife used in the assault might have been discarded on Interstate 5, the Sheriff’s Office said.

On Saturday and Sunday, detectives and King County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue teams searched an area of northbound I-5 between South 272nd Street and Kent-Des Moines Road for the knife.
