Edmonds police report busy weekend, with stabbing and burglary arrest

EPDpatchA stabbing in Edmonds and a burglary arrest involving three Lynnwood men kept Edmonds police busy over the weekend.

According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Josh McClure, police responded to Swedish Edmonds hospital at 5 a.m. Sunday morning, Nov. 20, for a 44-year old Edmonds man who was in critical condition and being treated for multiple stab wounds. After hospital staff spent asignificant amount of time trying to stabilize the victim, he was transferred to Harborview Medical Center where he is currently in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit, McClure said.

The investigation led to a residence in the 21900 block of 86th Place West, where the man’s 37-year-old cousin was interviewed and arrested at the scene. A weapon believed to have been used by the male suspect was located. Detectives served a search warrant on the residence, where additional evidence was recovered.

The investigation found that the suspect and victim are family members who also live together in the Edmonds home. The suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for a first-degree felony assault charge involving domestic violence, McClure said.

Less than 24 hours later, early Monday morning Nov. 21, Edmonds officers responded to a construction site after an employee at the site, located in the 7200 block of 212th Street Southwest, had seen a suspect vehicle back into the location and suspects began loading property into the trunk. A responding officer found the suspect vehicle leaving the area and stopped it around 2:20 a.m., McClure said.

Three male suspects, a 20-year-old and two 18-year-olds, all from Lynnwood, were arrested for burglary. Nearly $1,000 in stolen property was recovered from the suspect vehicle.

According to McClure, the burglary investigation is ongoing and detectives will look at the suspects’ potential involvement in other similar crimes in the area.
