When police arrived, they found a 33-year-old man with multiple stab wounds.

Police treated the victim until Seattle Fire medics arrived and took him to Harborview Medical Center. Authorities say his injuries were non-life-threatening.

Investigators determined that the stabbing happened after a fight broke out between the people involved. 

The SPD says the suspect stabbed the victim and then passed the knife off to a female suspect.
