Bremerton woman stabs herself, claims man did it

A Bremerton woman who stabbed herself and then told police a 6-foot-tall man in a black hoodie did it has been booked into Kitsap County Jail on investigation of false reporting and obstructing police.

The 24-year-old woman called 911 at 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday and said she’d been stabbed while walking on Wheaton Way, a main road, near her home, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman claimed the suspect approached her, asked for directions, stabbed her with a knife and then fled on foot, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Bremerton police, the Sheriff’s Office, medics and K-9 units responded and initiated a massive search for the alleged suspect, who was described as a 6-foot-tall white male who was wearing a black sweater or hooded sweatshirt and khaki pants.

Meanwhile, the woman was transported to the local hospital and then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, sheriff’s spokesman Scott Wilson wrote in a news release.

The woman was arrested Thursday and had bail set at $20,000, he said.
