Suspect In Stabbing Still At Large
Police are asking that if you’ve seen the man in the picture to the left, please call 911 immediately.
He is the suspect in a stabbing last Sunday that sent two people to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Eusebio Hernandez-Espinoza, 41, is the man police believe attacked his estranged wife and another man in the 100 block of Eighth Avenue in Seattle’s Central District.
Hernandez-Espinoza and his wife had befriended the man at a Burien bar before the 4:20 a.m. stabbing (NOTE: we do not know which bar but the fact that it was Burien indicates that he may hang out here).
Officers say the three returned to a Central District apartment, where Hernandez-Espinoza stabbed them numerous times. The man collapsed at the intersection of Yesler and Broadway; police found the female collapsed in the apartment doorway.
Police say Hernandez-Espinoza, who is also known as Nelson Hernandez, may be driving a white pickup truck with a brown or black canopy and Idaho license plates. He has black hair, brown eyes is 5-foot-7 with a medium build.
Police believe Hernandez-Espinoza may be armed.
“That’s why we’re asking people not to approach him,” spokesman Jeff Kappel said. “We want people to watch him from a safe distance and call us to come get him.”
