Police respond to Belmont Ave building for man reported stabbed in early morning robbery

Seattle Fire and Seattle Police found a man stabbed in the back inside a Capitol Hill apartment building but not much information about what happened in a reported robbery early Friday morning.

Emergency units rushed to the area just before 5 AM after a 911 caller reported that the victim had been stabbed in a robbery or attempted robbery. Their arrival was delayed by more than five minutes due to confusion over the caller’s location, according to emergency radio dispatches.

Police were able to track down the incident in the 1700 block of Belmont at the Granada Apartment building where the victim was found with what appeared to be one knife wound to the upper back.

Seattle Fire rushed the victim to Harborview. We do not have information on his condition. UPDATE: SFD tells us a man in his 40s was taken to the hospital in stable condition in the reported stabbing.

Police were attempting to piece together what happened in the incident with limited information from the victim or the caller.

UPDATE 2/26/18: It took us a bit but we received the SPD report on the stabbing and it sounds like police don’t have much to work with in the case with very limited details from the victim or the woman who called 911:
