In an early morning altercation, a cyclist was arrested after allegedly stabbing a pedestrian “multiple times.”
Seattle police arrested a 40-year-old bicyclist on suspicion he stabbed a pedestrian after crashing into him at a Capitol Hill intersection early Sunday.
Seattle police reported officers responded to 911 calls at the intersection of Broadway East and East Pine Street, where they found two men, one with a folding knife and the other with abdominal stab wounds.
Police said that witnesses reported the victim crossed the intersection against the traffic signal, and the cyclist ran into him. That led to a scuffle, then witnesses told police they saw the cyclist stab the pedestrian “multiple times.”
Police booked the cyclist into King County Jail. Seattle fire medics treated the victim and transferred him to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
