Suspect at large in Seattle bus stabbing; victim in stable condition

A man in his 40s suspected of stabbing another man on a downtown Seattle bus Wednesday evening is still at large, police said Friday.

The stabbing victim, also a man in his 40s, is in stable condition and expected to survive, said Detective Drew Fowler of the Seattle Police Department. His injuries were reported as life-threatening when he was taken to Harborview Medical Center on Wednesday.

Police say the victim entered a Metro bus and sat down next to the suspect, who began to argue with him about how close the two were sitting. The suspect stabbed the man with a knife multiple times, according to police, then got off the bus at Third Avenue and Marion Street and fled on foot shortly after 6 p.m.

Seattle homicide detectives are investigating. Police plan to scour the bus for evidence Friday, Fowler said. The incident occurred on Route 132, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. If you have information, call  Seattle police at 206-233-5000.
