Police seeking help identifying White Center stabbing suspects



King County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying three men who attacked and stabbed another man in White Center on Sunday night (Oct. 25) around 6:30 p.m. (read our previous coverage here).

A surveillance video shows the three men hanging around a Bartell’s Drug store prior to the stabbing and then fleeing after the stabbing.

The stabbing occurred around 6:30 p.m. near the Bartell’s Drug store at 15th Ave SW and SW Roxbury.

When police first contacted the victim after he had been stabbed, he thought he had been on a bus with the suspects. During recovery in the hospital though, he told detectives that the suspects had not been on the bus. The victim told police he had gotten off the bus and gone to a smoke shop near the Bartell’s Drug store. He went back to the bus stop near Bartell’s and was smoking when the suspects bumped into him. He said words were exchanged and an altercation ended with him being stabbed multiple times.

When the first deputy on the scene arrived he found the victim, barely conscious, with a blade stuck in his back near his spine. The victim told the deputy that he could not feel his legs.

The three suspects fled on foot southbound and can be seen in the video running away. The victim is still in intensive care at Harborview and is paralyzed as a result of the stabbing.

Detectives are asking for the public’s help identifying the suspects on this video. They are described as three Hispanic males, late teens or early 20’s and had blue bandanas.
