Fight over aggressive dog leads to stabbing in Capitol Hill park

Police say a fight between two men over an aggressive dog led to a stabbing last night at Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill.

The victim was in the park just before 10 p.m. when the unleashed dog charged at him at least twice, according to police. The victim kicked the dog, sparking a fight between the victim and the dog’s owner.

The owner of the dog pulled out a knife and stabbed and slashed the victim in the stomach, police say.

Seattle Fire Department medics took the victim to Harborview Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police searched the park and located a suspect, a man in his 20s. Police recovered two knives, one of which they believe was used in the stabbing.

Police said the suspect will be booked into the King County Jail for investigation of felony assault.
