Suspect in Bellevue stabbing captured



BELLEVUE, Wash. - A 45-year-old woman is recovering from stab wounds inflicted by her daughter at a Bellevue apartment complex, police said.

Only KIRO 7 interviewed a witness to the 9 p.m. Sunday stabbing, which happened in an apartment complex near the corner of Northeast Eighth Street and 148th Avenue Northeast. 

 That witness said he saw the victim walking, covered with blood and in a state of undress, after someone asked to borrow his cellphone to call 911.

Medics transported the victim to the emergency room with several non-life-threatening stab wounds.  She is in stable condition.

The suspect, the woman's 23-year-old daughter, fled after the attack.

 With squad cars, a dog, and officers on foot, police locked down the neighborhood around the apartment complex.  A couple of officers walking on a path nearby found and arrested the woman within an hour of the first response.

The King County Jail register appears to show that the suspect was booked at 2:33 a.m. for investigation of domestic violence assault.  That same woman was listed with a 2008 conviction for second-degree malicious mischief with property damage in excess of $250.
