- Broadway/Pike stabbing: SPD has details on an early morning bit of nightlife gone bad. The medical facility referenced, by the way, is a King County sobering facility down across I-5 on Boren — perhaps swinging the arrow back toward tragedy for this kind of incident.
Man Stabbed Outside Bar Goes Back For Another Drink
Written by Jonah Spangenthal-Lee on October 14, 2013
After being stabbed in a brawl outside a Capitol Hill bar early this morning, a 21-year-old went back for another drink before heading to a medical facility.
The man told police he was at a bar near Broadway and Pike Street around 1 am this morning when he got into an argument with another patron, and the two men headed out of the bar to sort out their differences.
After a brief brawl with the other man, the victim walked away from the fight when his side began to hurt.
The victim then realized he had blood running down his back from a two-and-a-half inch wound, but decided to go back into the bar and have two more shots of liquor.
The victim then walked to a medical facility, where staff called police.
When officers arrived to talk to the man, he was only able to give officers a vague description of the suspect.
