Sketch of suspect in park stabbing released by Tacoma police

In a concerted effort to apprehend a suspect in a disturbing park stabbing incident, the Tacoma Police Department, collaborating closely with the victim, unveiled a composite sketch this Sunday.

The attack, which left a woman grievously wounded, occurred at Point Defiance Park on February 10th, around 1 p.m., while she traversed the Spine Trail, also known colloquially as the light-blue trail.

According to police reports, the assailant forcefully subdued the woman, pinning her down before inflicting multiple stab wounds. Fortunately, the intervention of onlookers disrupted the attack, prompting the suspect to flee towards the Owen Beach parking area, as detailed by The News Tribune.

The victim was promptly transported to a local hospital, where she has since been reported in stable condition.

The suspect, believed to be a male in his 20s or 30s with a slim physique and approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, was last observed donning dark attire.

In a bid to gather crucial evidence, Tacoma police are urging the community, particularly those with dashboard cameras, to review their footage from the day of the attack and the preceding days. Detective William Muse, a spokesperson for the department, emphasized the importance of this community collaboration in a statement to The News Tribune.

In addition to the ongoing investigation, a reward of $1,000 has been announced for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the assailant.

Community members with relevant information are encouraged to contact the authorities via or call 1-800-222-8477. The Tacoma Police Department remains committed to ensuring the safety of its residents and swiftly bringing the perpetrator to justice.
