An Aberdeen woman was brutally beaten and stabbed multiple times alongside State Route 109 last night. Undersheriff Dave Pimentel tells us her attacker is also her child’s uncle. The 19 year old Hoquiam man confessed to arresting officers and remains in custody on attempted murder charges. Pimentel said a woman called 911 around 10:15 last night after getting into cellphone range, she had dropped off the two North of Grays Harbor City and witnessed the attack.
Earlier last night the suspect had apparently told the victim that he had a surprise for her, the 48 year old Hoquiam woman that reported the assault, was giving them a ride when the suspect asked her to pull over and began assaulting the 22 year old Aberdeen woman.
Pimentel said the victim fled the car, but the suspect gave chase and pulled a knife, stabbing her numerous times according to the witness statement.
Deputies found the suspect nearby, he was booked on investigation of Attempted Murder in the 1st degree, the woman was transported to Community Hospital in Aberdeen and is being treated for numerous injuries including a punctured lung.
