Update: The suspect sporting tattooed horns from today’s earlier stabbing has been arrested in Belltown after he continued his wanton rampage through Seattle. With many officers still searching for the suspect, two calls in quick succession were reported with a suspect description matching the earlier stabbing suspect.
This third victim had his cell-phone stolen from him by a knife wielding man at 3rd Ave and Bell Street. Yet another victim was nearly stabbed by the suspect as he waited for the bus.
Officers swarmed the area found the man at 4th Ave and Olive Street where he was taken into custody.
The man will be booked into King County Jail on a litany of felony charges including two counts of assault in the 2nd degree and armed robbery for starters. Thanks to all who kept a keen eye out for our bedeviled suspect.
A man with a tattooed face stabbed a couple in the 1800 block of Eastlake Avenue and then skated away on his board southbound on Howell.
Officers responded quickly and scoured the area but did not locate the suspect. Firefighters provided emergency care to the 19 year old woman and 22 year old man and then transported both to Harborview Medical Center for further treatment. Fortunatley, their injuries don’t appear to be life threatening.
The victims described the suspect as a blond haired white man in his twenties with horns tattooed on his forehead and bolts tattooed on his cheeks. He is about 5’11” tall, weighs about 185 pounds, and was last seen wearing a yellow shirt and black pants. He may be riding a skateboard.
Officers are still in the area continuing their investigation and searching for the suspect.
Anyone with information regarding this very distinctive-looking individual should call 911 immediately.

Transit customers are advised to expect possibly significant traffic and schedule delays on Wednesday and Thursday during Seahawks and NFL events and activities in the Pioneer Square and Stadium areas, leading up to the Seahawks home opener on Thursday evening.
Expect delays in transit service
While it is expected that most transit service will operate regular routes and serve the usual stops, traffic and congestion related to these events could cause crowding and delays on streets and for all types of transportation in the area.
Transit riders should expect delays on any service that travels in or near downtown Seattle and possible in other areas of the system as these types of events and delays often affect other areas and routes. Metro advises riders to plan ahead, and allow plenty of time or revise travel plans if necessary. Use the regularly published schedule for your service, but expect delays and plan accordingly.
Routes 16, 66 & 99 will be rerouted on Thursday
In addition to likely delays in service, all day on Thursday, September 4, Metro routes 16, 66 & 99 will be rerouted off of S Jackson St between Fourth and First avenues South, due to the Seahawks season-opening home game and NFL events.
During this event, northbound routes 16, 66 and 99 will travel instead via 4th Av S, Prefontaine Pl S, Yesler Way and 1st Av to their regular routes, serving all posted stops along the reroute.
Southbound routes 16 and 66 on their way into downtown Seattle will not be rerouted.
Southbound Route 99 heading toward the International District will travel via Cherry St, 2nd Av, the 2nd Av Ext S and S Jackson St to its regular route, serving all posted bus stops.
Visit Metro’s Service Advisories page for specific reroute information. Transit reroute start and end times may be subject to change.
