Washington man allegedly stabs 3 roommates

Posted by Steve Karimi | Jun 20, 2014 | 0 Comments

On Feb. 27, a 23-year-old man was taken into custody in Lynnwood for allegedly stabbing three people. Snohomish County sheriff's deputies and paramedics responded to call around 4 a.m. about a possible stabbing at a Lynnwood mobile home. When the deputies arrived, they found four injured people, three men and a woman, two with serious injuries. Deputies reported the four people at the scene may have been roommates.

According to the Snohomish County sheriff's representative, the stabbings took place in the 15900 block of Highway 99. The 23-year-old man was treated for minor wounds and later booked into county jail where he was questioned by police about the incident. No further information had been released about the assaults, and the sheriff's department reported that they did not learn much from the man's statements. No formal charges had been filed by the end of that day, but the police may charge someone with a felony offense.

Two of the injured men were transported to Harborview Medical Center. One of the men had wounds to his chest and face. The other had been wounded in the cheek. While one man is listed in critical condition and the other is listed in serious condition, both are expected to survive. The 29-year-old injured woman was treated for a minor wound to her neck.

The accused man in this case will most likely want to consult with a criminal defense attorney. The attorney might be able to use the available evidence to show that he was not the aggressor in the altercation. At the time of the incident, there may not have been any witnesses or apparent motive. Depending on the outcome of the investigation, the attorney might be in a position to advise as to the best possible defense or course of action.
