Man Arrested after Stabbing in Hotel Parking Lot

A 37-year-old Shelton man was booked into Mason County Jail for assaulting another man with a deadly weapon in a hotel parking lot Monday night. According to the Shelton Police Department, officers responded to the 100 block of East Alder Street just before midnight after MACECOM received a 9-1-1 call reporting a man had been stabbed. 

Upon arrival, officers located the victim who had sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries. He was transported to Mason General Hospital.

The suspect was still on scene and was arrested. Authorities are withholding the suspect’s name pending formal charged from the Mason County Prosecutor.

The motive for the assault has yet to be determined and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Shelton Police at 360-426-4441.
