Party foul: Seattle house party ends in stabbing

SEATTLE -- A Queen Anne resident whose mom was out of town decided to throw a party for a "few invited friends." Unfortunately, a bunch of uninvited guests showed up, and the party ended with a disturbance, a stabbing and numerous calls to 911, according to the Seattle Police Department.

According to police, the host was trying to get the 20 or 25 people -- only about half of whom he had invited -- partying at his house near Taylor Avenue North and Newton Street to leave around 1 a.m. when a fight broke out.

The party's host and neighbors all called 911, and officers arrived to find most everyone gone from the party.

A trail of blood led from the driveway to the spot where witnesses said they saw a number of people, including one bleeding heavily, drive away.

According to police, an officer stopped a speeding car nearby and found a 24-year-old man inside, bleeding from his arm. According to police, the man admitted to being involved in a disturbance at a party.

The man was reportedly uncooperative with officers and did not want to participate in an investigation.

Police do not know who stabbed the man or why.
