A Kirkland couple were both arrested following a domestic dispute that left the man in the hospital with a stab wound early Saturday morning.
The 22-year-old Kingsgate woman alleged that her boyfriend choked her during an argument and officers observed injuries to the woman consistent with her story.
The woman then stabbed her 28-year-old boyfriend in the back “out of fear for her safety,” said Kirkland Police Lt. John Haslip in a release.
Police responded to the stabbing report at 4:29 a.m., finding the injured man uncooperative in the 12300 block of N.E. 150th Court near the Kirkland border with Woodinville in the Kingsgate neighborhood.
He was eventually transported to the hospital for treatment of the non life-threatening wound.
The man was arrested for domestic violence/second-degree assault and an outstanding Felony warrant out the State Dept. of Corrections.
The woman was also arrested on an outstanding felony Harassment warrant.
