Federal Way woman says she was stabbed by trick-or-treater

A Federal Way woman said she was stabbed in the stomach Monday night when she opened the door to what she thought was a trick-or-treater.

The woman answered her door around 9 p.m. She gave the candy to a teenage male, who then stabbed her and ran away, she told Federal Way police.

The suspect is described as a teenager, either 14 or 15 years old.

The stabbing occurred in the 31900 block of 14th Way SW. The woman’s injury was not life-threatening. She was taken to the hospital.

Federal Way Police tried to find the suspect using a police dog, but were unsuccessful. They remained in the neighborhood searching for the teen, but did not find him.
