First court appearances were held this afternoon for a man and a teenage boy who were arrested in connection with the stabbing of a Seattle University student early Wednesday morning.
Bail for the 23-year-old man was set at $1 million by a King County District Court judge who found cause to hold him in custody pending the filing of criminal charges.
The teen suspect, who turned 16 today, was ordered held in secure detention by a juvenile court judge.
Prosecutors said charges are expected to be filed against the two on Friday.
The two suspects, along with a 16-year-old girl, were arrested on investigation of robbery and assault after they followed a 23-year-old Seattle University student and then assaulted him, pushed him to the ground, then stabbed him, police said. All three suspects were located by police within blocks of the assault, police said.
The victim, who called for help from an emergency kiosk on campus, had been stabbed in the chest and suffered a potentially life-threatening injury, police said. According to prosecutors, the 16-year-old girl, who was also arrested and booked into the Youth Services Center, was released today pending further investigation.
