SEATTLE - A 40-year-old man was arrested in Seattle’s University District after police say he stabbed two people following an argument over music.
Police said they received calls around 4:30 a.m. about a stabbing that occurred in the 4700 block of 11th Avenue Northeast.
Arriving officers said they spoke with a 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man who reported being approached by the suspect while they were playing music on the steps of a nearby church.
“The suspect began yelling at them about the music and then stabbed the two victims before running away,” police wrote in a blotter post.
Police said the woman was transported to Haborview Medical Center to receive treatment for a laceration above her eye and the man was taken to the hospital for a hand injury.
Police said they searched the area and found the suspect a few blocks away.
He was taken into custody without incident and was booked into the King County Jail on investigation of assault, officials said.
