Woman slashed in face, stabbed in abdomen in South Seattle

A 37-year-old woman was slashed in the face and stabbed in the abdomen on Rainier Avenue South near South Austin Street about 5:15 a.m. Friday.

Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said the woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center but her injuries did not appear life-threatening.

“She was conscious and alert and outside walking and talking to us,” Moore said.

Seattle Police found the woman bleeding and leaning on her back on the hood of a car in the 7600 block of Rainier Avenue South, said Detective Renee Witt.

“She was only able to provide officers with the information that an unknown female stabbed her and she did not know why,” Witt said.

Police found a pool of blood on the sidewalk two blocks away and determined that witnesses had called 911. Police were concerned about internal bleeding so did not complete an interview with the victim.
