SULTAN, Washington – A 54-year-old Sultan woman has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree assault in a stabbing that took place around midnight on 132nd Street SE in Sultan.

Investigators believe the woman was arguing with her neighbor when she allegedly pulled a knife from her back pocket and stabbed him in the stomach. She went back to her home and allowed detectives to search her house when they arrived. They recovered a knife from the scene.

The victim, a 52-year-old Sultan man, was taken to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
