The Daily Herald reports that a 43-year-old man suffered a knife wound to the chest Sunday evening after witnesses say they saw him having an apparently friendly conversation with another man who was wearing a suit and carrying a cane.
The stabbing took place outside a Lynnwood-area restaurant. Doctors at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle say the knife came close to piercing the man's heart.
Deputies arrested a cane-carrying man in a suit as he walked along a highway a few blocks from the stabbing scene.
In his report, Detective Brad Pince says the man arrested for investigation of first-degree assault initially claimed self-defense, then mentioned the marijuana debt.
