The Seattle Times reported that Troy Wolff was stabbed in the neck and torso as he tried to defend his 30-year-old partner, who was also attacked Friday night as thousands of people left CenturyLink Field.
Seattle police spokesman Jeff Kappel said a 44-year-old suspect was arrested on the scene of the stabbing, where he was standing near the victims and holding a knife when police arrived. He dropped the knife and was taken into custody without further incident.
Wolff was the chair of the English department at Shoreline Community College.
Wolff's partner, Kristin Ito, was in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center late Saturday afternoon.
