According to the Seattle Police Department, Ross stabbed his mother multiple times in the face when he showed up at her apartment near Eighteenth Avenue and Madison Street around 4:30 a.m.

”When the victim opened the door, the suspect reportedly stepped forward and said ’This is what you get!’ and began stabbing his mother in the face with a knife,” police said in a news release. ”The victim screamed as she was attempting to fend off her son.”

The victim, a woman in her 60’s, sustained three deep stab wounds to her face, a cut to her finger, and a cut to her chest.

Ross is described as a black male, 6’ 2″ tall and 240 pounds. He was wearing all dark clothing at the time of the attack and may have been wearing a skull cap, according to police. He has distinctive tattoos, which include ”Mr. Ross” on his neck, an eyeball on his Adam’s Apple and a Grim Reaper on his forearm.

Anyone who sees Ross is asked to call 911.
