Two stabbed in Central District


The Seattle Police Department is investigating a double stabbing that happened in Seattle's Central District neighborhood early Sunday morning.

A call came into police about 4:20 a.m. from an apartment tenant who found a woman in bleeding from stab wounds in the doorway of his residence in the 100 block of Eighth Avenue, police spokesman Mark Jamieson said. Around that same time, someone else reported finding a man bleeding from knife wounds near the intersection of Broadway and Yesler Way.

Both of the victims were transported to nearby Harborview Medical Center with what appeared to police to be life-threatening injuries. Homicide investigators have been dispatched, Jamieson said.

"It is believed that these two incidents are connected, and it is domestic violence in nature," he said.

Police believe it's likely that the couple knows each other.
