MONROE, Wash. —

Police are investigating a stabbing in Monroe that sent a woman to the hospital.

Snohomish County Sheriff's spokesperson Shari Ireton said the stabbing happened around 7 p.m. Friday.

A 32-year old man was spotted wielding a knife in an alley in the 100 block of West Hill Street, Ireton said in a release.

Officers then learned that the man had stabbed the woman "multiple times" a few blocks away, near the 100 block of N. Lewis Street, according to Ireton.

That's when officers tried to negotiate with the man, says Ireton, while following him down the street.

The man sustained wounds after police used a stun gun to subdue him, according to Ireton.

Both the suspect and the victim were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Their conditions are not known.

Ireton says the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART) is investigating the incident.
