SEATTLE — A 29-year-old man has been charged with assault after three people were stabbed in Seattle on Tuesday.

The Seattle Times reported Christopher Morisette was charged Thursday with one count of first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said a man with a knife wound to the neck was discharged Thursday.

Gregg said another man who was stabbed in the back was also treated at the hospital.

Documents said Morisette stabbed another man in the arm.
