Two suspects were arrested Wednesday in connection with the brutal stabbing of an employee during a robbery at a gas station on New Year’s night in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood, police say.
In the Seattle Police department’s blog, Detective Patrick Michaud wrote that the two suspects were being interviewed and would later be booked into King County Jail.
The victim, a 65-year-old man working at a 76 gas station, was stabbed multiple times in the back and chest during an apparent robbery, Seattle police said. After a call from a customer, police arrived to find the attendant unconscious and bleeding.
Medics took him from the station at 551 S. Michigan St. to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. He was later listed in serious condition at the hospital.
Police say they located two suspects in the case on Wednesday.
First, a 47-year-old man was arrested near the 2700 block of East Madison Street. Hours later, after interviewing the man, police began looking for the second suspect. That person was arrested at a motel on Aurora Avenue North, Michaud wrote.
