Man stabbed in Cal Anderson Park last night
A stabbing in Cal Anderson Park Thursday evening sent a man in his 20s to the hospital and has Seattle police on the lookout for a suspect.
The victim was stabbed in the arm and back, but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
At 8:53 p.m., officers responded to Broadway Avenue and East Pine, just southwest of the park, where they found the victim. The man told police he had been stabbed a short time earlier following an argument with another man and then walked from the park. Police said they don’t believe the two men knew each other.
This makes the second stabbing incident in Cal Anderson Park in one week. An unrelated incident on Sunday landed Nick Siemion in the hospital after he was stabbed in the abdomen by another man when a confrontation over the suspect’s dog turned violent.
