Snoqualmie police investigate stabbing, sexual assault in North Bend

Snoqualmie/North Bend police and a Major Crimes Task Force detective are looking into a stabbing and sexual assault that happened late Sunday in North Bend.

Shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday, March 9, police responded to a 911 call from a business on the 400 block of Mount Si Boulevard in North Bend.

Officers found a woman, an employee at the business, who had been stabbed one time in the chest, duct taped at her feet and wrists, and sexually assaulted.

She was the last employee in the business and was exiting from the back door when an unknown Hispanic male forced her back into the premises.

She was transported to Overlake Hospital and is in stable condition.

A detective with the Major Crimes Task Force, a law enforcement city partnership of which Snoqualmie is a member, is assigned to the investigation.

Anyone having tips or information about this crime should report it to the police by calling 425-888-3333. Callers will remain anonymous to protect their identity.
