Original post

A 65-year-old man working at a 76 gas station in the Georgetown neighborhood was stabbed multiple times in the back and chest during an apparent robbery Thursday evening, Seattle police said. Investigators were using a K-9 unit to search for two suspects.

Police said they received a call around 9:30 p.m., after a customer entered the gas station and found the attendant unconscious and bleeding.

Medics transported the man from the station at 551 S. Michigan St. to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Homicide detectives were at the scene, viewing surveillance video and continuing to investigate Thursday night.

Police ask anyone with information on the incident to call 911.
