SEATTLE – Police say a man has died and a woman is in the hospital following a random stabbing in downtown Seattle.

The Seattle Police Department said Saturday that a 44-year-old man is in custody following the attack after Friday night’s Seattle Sounders game. Authorities believe the suspect is a stranger to the victims and that the attack was unprovoked.

In a description of the attack, authorities said the suspect confronted the woman and began repeatedly stabbing her in the torso with a small knife. The man attempted to intervene, and authorities say the suspect then began stabbing him in the neck and torso.
