Updated: Police say no threat to public safety after reported stabbing Thursday night

Updated Friday morning with additional details.

A man was transported to Harborview Medical Center Thursday night after he reported being stabbed in the leg near Edmonds’ Chase Lake Elementary School.

Edmonds Acting Assistant Police Chief Josh McClure said the stabbing, which appeared to have occurred at a residence in the area of 217th Street Southwest and 84th Avenue West, was reported at 7:53 p.m. A police K-9 unit was dispatched to search for the suspect, but the search was unsuccessful, McClure said.

McClure said Friday morning that detectives were continuing to investigate the incident. Officers checked video footage from neighboring homes and Chase Lake Elementary and didn’t find footage of a suspect fleeing. “We don’t believe there’s a threat to public safety,” McClure said.

  1. And here we are more focused on streateries and walkable Main Street when in the course of two months there have been three separate shootings within a 1/2 mile of HWY99, now a stabbing, not to mention the countless other crimes committed along this stretch of Edmonds on a daily basis. I guess the designation of “quaint small town” I hear by so many doesn’t extend past 9th Ave. Make it an Edmonds Kind of Day, folks! Be careful.
