Robbery suspect stabs security guard, is caught

At the NW Market St and 14th Ave NW Safeway, a simple shoplifting escalates into a stabbing, according to the SPD Blotter.

On Saturday, July 21 at approximately 11:57 p.m., a suspect stabbed a store security guard in the ear with a knife after being confronted about stealing.

The suspect then fled the store, but didn't make it very far. Just four blocks away, responding officers apprehended the suspect and booked him into King County Jail.

SFD medics came to the scene to evaluate and treat the victim. No details on how he is doing were given.
