Two males injured in stabbing in Kenmore

A 16-year-old male from Kenmore has claimed self defense after he stabbed two other teens on May 26.

According to Sgt. Cindi West with the King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO), the teen had arranged to meet with another individual to buy some marijuana. She said just before 5 p.m., the young man met with the seller, a 16-year-old male from Bothell, as well as a 17-year-old male from Mill Creek.

West said the sellers were in a vehicle when the buyer gave them $200 for the pot. The pair kept his money but did not give him the marijuana.

“The Kenmore teen reached in the car and grabbed the marijuana and took off on his bicycle,” she said. “The pair in the car searched for him and found him near (Rhododendron Park).”

A fight ensued in the 6900 block of Northeast 170th Street, across from the park. During the fight the Kenmore teen stabbed the pair in self defense when he thought he was “going out,” West said.

Following the incident, the sellers entered a nearby restaurant, Fortune Inn, to call the police.

The two sellers were transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. At the time of the Reporter’s deadline, one had serious injuries, the other had potentially life-threatening injuries, West said.

Once the investigation is complete, West said it will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office to review and decide what charges will be filed.
