An Olympia man in his 20s was stabbed in downtown Olympia late Tuesday but has not been cooperative in explaining incident details, according to Olympia police.
About 10 p.m. Tuesday, the man showed up outside a fast-food restaurant in the 700 block of Plum Street Southeast and told employees on their break that he had been stabbed in the abdomen.
The employees called 911, but by the time police responded, the man had gone to a shelter in the 800 block of Seventh Avenue Southeast to visit a relative, police spokeswoman Laura Wohl said. That’s where police found him, she said.
The man was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital with a wound that was not considered life-threatening, she said.
Never miss a local story.
The victim has not cooperated with investigators, Lt. Paul Lower said. Lower said the incident may have been a confrontation between two people who know each other.
Anyone with information is asked to call Olympia Police at 360-753-8300.
