Bremerton police investigating downtown stabbing

Police reported a stabbing outside the Victory Memorial Masonic Temple in Bremerton on Sunday night.

A 22-year-old man was stabbed twice in the back, police said. He was rushed to Harrison Medical Center with wounds described as non-life-threatenening.

The victim required the use of a Spanish language interpreter, police said.

Reports of the incident came in at 9:29 p.m. A temple employee said the facility was hosting a Guatemalan dance event, which is held periodically.

The suspect fled, according to BPD Detective Keith Sargent. An investigation is ongoing. In an interview with police, the victim said he did not know who stabbed him.

It was the second time the Bremerton Police Department had been dispatched to the temple that night after receiving an earlier call about a man with a knife.

“There was an allegation of a knife inside there. When police got there, there was no issue,” Sargent said. “Later they got called back to a stabbing.”

“We’re still trying to put the pieces together,” he said.
