Suspect arrested in stabbing on downtown Seattle bus

Seattle police say they have arrested a man suspected of stabbing another man on a downtown Seattle bus on Dec. 24.

The stabbing victim, a man in his 40s, survived the attack. But police said his injuries were life-threatening when he was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Police say the victim entered the Route 132 bus and sat down next to another man, who began to argue with him about how close the two were sitting. The passenger who had been seated first stabbed the man with a knife multiple times, according to police, then got off the bus at Third Avenue and Marion Street and fled shortly after 6 p.m.

Police have not released information on what led to the arrest.
