Stabbing, arrest in Monroe leaves two injured

Police used a Taser and an unidentified “less-than-lethal” impact weapon to subdue a man suspected of stabbing a woman in Monroe Friday night.

Snohomish County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said the county’s Multiple Agency Response Team, called out when someone is injured during a confrontation with police officer, was at the scene.

Ireton said the  incident began at approximately 7 p.m. when a knife-wielding 32- year-old man was spotted in the alley near the 100 block of West Hill Street. Officers learned that the man was suspected of stabbing a 34-year-old woman nearby. Ireton said police attempted to negotiate with the man, following him down the street. Officers then approached the suspect, used the impact weapon and a Taser to subdue him.

Both were taken to Harvorview Medical Center, where their conditions were not immediately available.
