Police: Woman stabs boyfriend in the head, flees in car

SEATTLE - A man was stabbed in the head by his girlfriend early Wednesday, and investigators are now looking for her, police said.

Officers and medics responded to the scene, a residence in the 100 block of 29th Avenue, at about 6:30 a.m. after receiving a report of an assault with a knife, said Seattle police spokeswoman Renee Witt.

The victim told police that his 53-year-old girlfriend had stabbed him in the head with a knife and then fled the scene in her vehicle.

Seattle Fire Department medics treated the man, who sustained 2- to 3-inch lacerations to the left rear side of his head.

The man refused to provide a statement or tell officers what precipitated the assault.

The girlfriend was last seen leaving the area in her vehicle, a black 2000 Ford Taurus 4-door.
