Man Allegedly Knifed for Not Sharing Pot

Posted by on Wed, Oct 31, 2012 at 4:22 PM

PRO TIP: If Someone cuts you with "a 10" chef knife" after you tell them they can't smoke your medical marijuana, they are not your friend.

On Monday, October 29, police responded to a 911 call in Lower Queen Anne. According to the police report, a woman and her friend met up with another friend at his place at 3:30 a.m. Monday morning. As the police report states, "they talked for a little while and then [the future witness to the crime] fell asleep on the couch."

When the suspect asked if she could smoke some of the victim's medical pot and he said no, "she became upset." The "[woman] said that she was going to punch [the sleeping friend] to wake him up and they would leave," according to the police report. The guy told police "he stopped her from punching [the sleeping friend] and she ended up punching [the man] instead." When he told her to get out of his apartment, they tangled and "in the struggle they both fell to the ground."

According to the report, the suspect then got up, ran to the kitchen, grabbed a 10" chef knife and allegedly gashed the victim's arm. During the commotion, the witness woke up, "grabbed her from behind and said he attempted to 'choke her out.'" While the witness restrained her, the "[victim] grabbed all of the knives out of the kitchen and hid them behind his bed," after which he called 911.

Police went to the suspect's address to look for her, but she was gone. According the police, report the male victim had been "friends" with the female suspect for over three years. But attacking a friend with a knife over medical pot is usually enough to sever a friendship.

I'm guessing alcohol may have been involved as well...

"they are not your friend"

George Carline once said he was annoyed when he read a headline that said a man attempted to kill his girlfriend. He said that once you start to try to kill someone, that should count as a break-up.

Lower Queen Anne?

That sounds more like the Auburn police blotter there.

Guess their not doing reference checks at the condo boards any more, post bubble.

The strangest part of this story to me is that the guy hid all his kitchen knives behind his bed...

@7 English is a living language. "They" as a third person, gender-neutral pronoun is widely used and accepted.
