The injury was acquired from a box knife at the hands of his neighbor, as the result of a verbal argument that escalated.

The registered owner of the vehicle says he parked his car in the driveway around 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday night, but found it gone when he woke up.
The officers ran his name through DOL and it returned notice of a suspended license. The car had been towed from the scene of an early morning crash on Lowell-Snohomish Rd., where the driver had fled the scene.
