SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. - Two men in their 20s were stabbed by a man and a woman in what police said appears to be a random attack while the victims were throwing a Frisbee in Snohomish Tuesday night.

Police said at 11:45 p.m., Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the 600 block of Glen Avenue where two men, ages 22 and 23 years old, had stab wounds to their upper bodies.

The victims said they were at the former freshman campus for Snohomish High School with a friend, throwing a Frisbee, when a man and a woman they did not know approached the group asking if they had seen their lost dog. Without warning, the couple attacked the group, stabbing two men.

The male attacker is described as white, about 20 years old, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with brown hair and some facial hair. The female attacker was also white, about 20 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a thin build and curly brown hair.

Both victims were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, but according to the father of victims, both are in pretty bad shape.

He said the two were playing glow-in-the dark Frisbee.  The father also said the attackers likely were drug users or dealers who had been on a walking path nearby known by locals as “stoner trail.”

Deputies searched the area but were unable to find the attackers.

Detectives from the Major Crimes Unit for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the attack.  Anyone with information about the attack is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office tip line at 425-388-3845.
