Seattle Police arrested an engaged couple in downtown Thursday evening when they were using illegal weapons to assault a man.

At 6:15 p.m., officers patrolled 3rd Avenue and Pine Street and were flagged down about a fight between a 47-year-old man against a 22-year-old man and his 24-year-old fiancée.

The victim had cuts on his head and multiple stab wounds, and officers began first aid. Seattle Fire Department medics responded and began to treat the victim before transporting him to Harborview Medical Center.

Nearby at Westlake Park, the couple flagged down another patrol officer to report that the stabbing victim had pepper-sprayed them. The engaged man and woman said they had been riding a bus on 3rd Avenue when the man approached them and touched the woman’s leg.

A yelling match ensued and all three got off the bus.

The 47-year-old man then pepper-sprayed the couple, according to the police report, which caused the couple to respond by attacking the man with spiked brass knuckles and a switchblade knife.

Officers arrested the couple for felony assault and are requesting charges for possession of dangerous weapons as well.

The couple is booked in King County Jail.

The vehicle started rolling and the 41-year-old man driving was thrown from the vehicle. Police say he was not wearing a seatbelt.

JM Dickinson Rd is closed between SW Lake Helena Rd and SW Lake Flora Rd while the scene is investigated.
