Man stabbed with fork during melee in Int'l District [WA]

SEATTLE - A man was stabbed repeatedly with a fork then punched during a large disturbance involving more than 50 people early Sunday in Seattle's International District, police said.

Seattle police were dispatched to the scene, outside a restaurant in the 500 block of Maynard Avenue South, at about 2:35 a.m.

There they found 50 or more people spilling onto the street from the restaurant, all pushing and shoving each other. It was unclear if all of them were involved in the disturbance, or had come out to watch.

The restaurant staff locked the doors after everyone spilled out, preventing anyone from coming back in.

One officer spotted a bloody victim pinned against the locked door and saw another man punching him. The officer jumped in and stopped the assault.

After the suspect was in custody, it was determined that the victim had been stabbed repeatedly with a fork inside the restaurant.

A preliminary investigation found that the suspect attacked the victim after he saw him dancing with a woman at another nightclub, and the suspect took offense, police said.

The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of his injuries, which included fork stab wounds to his head, hand, and other areas.

Least it wasn’t a fondue fork fight. That’s just cheesy.

The coroner said, “Stick a fork in him. He’s done.”

When attacking in the International District, does one hold the fork in the right or left hand?

Not for a lack of fork, but a lack of tine.

Lovely picture. Either a path to the beach or a picnic on a golf course.
Fork looking for the runaway spoon.

I had idiots screw with me all the time in school. One day they went too far at mealtime and I had to educate them on that point. Apparently when you stab someone in the hand who keeps messing with your food, makes them scream and cry.

They also don’t do it again.

Just remember it is NOT my fault.
