Silverdale stabbing suspect arrested

Kitsap County Sheriff’s detectives arrested 22-year-old Sean Thompson of East Bremerton Friday afternoon on a first-degree assault with a deadly weapon charge in connection with the Thursday night stabbing of a 37-year-old Kingston man.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 9700 block of Danwood Lane in Silverdale and located the victim outside an apartment complex. With him was his girlfriend who said she knew Thompson as a casual acquaintance.

Showing up uninvited to the household where the victim and his girlfriend were, the two men broke out in a fight about the woman. Although she didn’t see what happened, she found her boyfriend on the ground bleeding from an injury to the chest. The victim told sheriff’s deputies he was having a hard time talking and breathing. He was then taken to Harrison Medical Center Silverdale where he was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center (HMC) in Seattle.

Thompson fled the scene on foot but was later arrested at his residence and booked into jail with bail set at $100,000.

The victim was discharged from HMC early Friday afternoon.
