Police make arrest in downtown Seattle stabbing

Police have arrested a 21-year-old in connection with the Friday night stabbing of a 16-year-old male at Second Avenue and Pine Street.

The arrest was made in Tukwila.

Seattle police responded to the stabbing just before 8 p.m. Friday. The victim, who had been hanging out with a group of friends, was stabbed five times in the back. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center with injuries that were considered life-threatening, according to a Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman.

Police reported the victim knew his attackers and that witnesses were suspected gang members and uncooperative in the investigation.

Later, a female approached a Tukwila police officer at a light-rail station, Seattle police said today.  She pointed out two people and told Tukwila police that they had been involved in a Seattle stabbing, police said. Tukwila officers detained the two and Seattle gang-unit detectives came to interview them.  A 21-year-old suspect was booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault.
