Man attacked with machete in Chinatown ID

Seattle firefighters are treating a man who called 911 this afternoon to report that he had been stabbed with a machete just before 1 p.m. in Seattle’s Chinatown International District, according to a police spokesman.

The victim called 911 around 12:50 p.m. to report the stabbing near Seventh Avenue and Main Street, but has been uncooperative with responding officers, said Seattle police spokesman Patrick Michaud.

A suspect has not been located, said Michaud, adding that the victim’s injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
