Husband who stabbed wife still on the loose

Posted on September 27th, 2011 by Editor


Seattle police say the man who stabbed his wife last night in lower Queen Anne is still at large.

At 6:42 p.m., officers responded to a report of a stabbing in the 600 block of Queen Anne Avenue North near Roy Street. According to the preliminary police report, investigators found that a 24-year-old suspect stabbed a woman believed to be his wife. The suspect had fled the scene on foot and was gone when police arrived. Police searched the area using a canine unit but failed to locate the suspect.

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center and was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives are currently searching for the man who is described as a white male about 5-foot-8, with shoulder-length brown hair. A knife was recovered at the scene. No word yet on where the victim was stabbed. The View will provide updates as they come.

    The problem with these posts (and this includes the original SPD blotter post) is the lack of a suspect picture.

    That description could easily apply to ~5% of the population, so, as nice as the big map is, this posts offers no way to assist in bringing the suspect to justice unless he happens to be bragging about his crime or something.

    the key thing about finding this guy is to determine where they live. If they were tourists, he’s probably long gone. If they live in the area, he’s gone but not for long. If they live on QA, then he should be caught pretty quick, but we need something like a sketch or picture, as Hayflick suggests.

    Interesting to see QAV listing the suspect’s race. If you’re a regular reader of this site you’ll notice that they only identify race when the subject is white.

    The lack-of-race descriptions happened with the old editor. Hopefully the new editor will use race as a physical description when needed, just like he’d report that someone is blond or tall.

    Tico and Parentof3, that’s a lie, the other editor listed race and other descriptors. Give us a break!

    Umm, no it’s not. And furthermore, there was a lengthy discussion, with the old editor, about the lack of race identification. I believe her point was that it “wasn’t fair” to other members of the id’d race, or something equally ridiculous.

    I agree the media is scared to post pictures or descriptions of persons of interest unless they are white. I recall the Tuba Man killer was never ID’ed (sic?) after committing several crimes, until his last one, and that picture was of him in court!
