A 30-year-old male is in custody on investigation of assault following a stabbing in the Overlake area this morning near 148th Ave NE and NE 24th St. Just before 8:00 am, officers received a call that a person was stabbed multiple times and the suspect was seen walking away from the area.
Officers immediately helped the 34-year-old male victim with his wounds until medics arrived and transported him to the hospital with serious injuries. Officers saturated the area searching for the suspect. In less than two hours, a Redmond police officer spotted someone matching the suspect’s description outside the Overlake Safeway, about two blocks from the crime scene. The suspect was quickly identified and arrested. He had placed socks over his distinctive shoes in an effort to avoid identification.
After his arrest, officers discovered the suspect had a no-bail Department of Corrections warrant out for his arrest for Escape Community Custody.
