UPDATE: SPD has released its preliminary report on the incident:
Police remain on the lookout for the suspect in a stabbing that occurred in Cal Anderson Park tonight. At approximately 8:53 p.m. officers responded to Broadway Avenue and East Pine Street to contact a male victim who had been stabbed a short time earlier (the victim walked to that location to call 911). After interviewing the victim, officers determined the stabbing actually occurred in Cal Anderson Park. The victim had gotten into a verbal altercation with a male suspect that escalated with the suspect stabbing the victim in his left arm and back. The suspect then fled the scene on foot. The victim and suspect are not believed to be known to each other.
The victim, a male in his 20′s, was treated by fire department medics at the scene and subsequently transported to Harborview Medical Center for further treatment of his non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black male in his 30′s wearing all dark clothing. Officers conducted an area search however, the suspect remains at large.
This remains an active and on-going investigation.
