Neighbors React to Selah Stabbing

Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash. -- A stabbing at a Selah apartment building has neighbors frustrated.

The apartment building was originally built for seniors but neighbors say that changed quickly. Now, they say police are at the complex at least twice a week and recently, there has been an increase in car break-ins.

Neighbors are upset with the landlord's screening process and say they are afraid of what the neighborhood is becoming. Especially, since the same developer is planning to build another complex down the street.

A neighbor said, "I think this is the problem in this neighborhood. I think this is more of screen your people so you know who is living in the apartment complexes, and this isn't an isolated incident. There have been other incidents as far as this apartment complex."

Yesterday at the complex, a suspect entered another man's apartment, accusing him of being a police informant.

After a struggle over a knife, the man stabbed the suspect in the head, chest, and neck.   

The suspect was treated for his injuries and arrested for 1st degree burglary.
