Police seek man reportedly involved in Edmonds stabbing

EDMONDS — Two men were rushed from an Edmonds apartment complex to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with stab wounds late Sunday morning.

Police are searching for a third man believed to have been involved in the fight. Investigators and a police dog tracked a blood trail leading away from the Horizon Park Apartments, but lost the trail.

The suspect may have been injured. He was wearing a dark blue shirt and dark pants, according to Sgt. Josh McClure, a spokesman with Edmonds Police Department.

The suspect is considered armed and potentially dangerous, but not a threat to the community at large, police said.

One victim was in serious but stable condition, and the other was still in critical condition as of Sunday afternoon.

The attack occurred across the street from College Place Middle School on 208th Street Southwest.

With the two injured men in surgery, and several potential witnesses unable to speak English, detectives slowly pieced together bits of information about the fight. Spanish speakers were brought in to assist with the investigation.

“Right now, we only know that our victims are two Hispanic males in their 20s, possibly in their 30s,” McClure said. “We haven’t been able to positively identify them or if they were residents here or if they were visiting.”

Police believe that the three men in the fight were acquaintances or knew of each other.

The fight left blood pools and splatters from the second-story apartment to the parking lot below.

Angel Malidore was in her apartment when she heard screaming at about 10:30 a.m. Stepping outside, she saw one of the men later taken to Harborview.

“He was bleeding out in the parking lot,” Malidore said.

Another resident rushed to help, using his shirt to stanch the bleeding, she said.

Emergency personnel and police arrived a few minutes later. They found the second injured man in the apartment. The stairway was too narrow for a stretcher, so medics carried him out in what looked like a bedsheet, witnesses said.

“He was in horrible condition,” Malidore said.

Anyone who sees the suspect should call 911. If anyone has information about the fight, they can call 911 or Edmonds Police’s tip line at 425-771-0212, or send an email to epdtips@edmondswa.gov.
