Man arrested, accused of stabbing 3 roommates in Lynnwood

LYNNWOOD — A Lynnwood-area man was arrested for investigation of domestic violence assault early Thursday morning after allegedly stabbing his roommates.

All three injured people are expected to survive, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

The assaults were reported around 4 a.m. at a trailer park home in the 15900 block of Highway 99.

One man was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He was stabbed in the chest and face. He initially was believed to be in critical condition.

Another man also was taken to Harborview with a stab wound to his cheek. He initially was listed in serious condition.

Neither of their ages was immediately available.

A woman, 29, also was treated for minor injuries to her neck.

A large kitchen knife was recovered from the scene, Ireton said.

It’s unclear at this point what led to the stabbings.

“The suspect is not saying anything,” Ireton said.

He was being treated for minor wounds, but was expected to be booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

Detectives were investigating the case as domestic violence assault because the suspect and the people who were injured are roommates, Ireton said.

No other details were immediately available.
