SEATTLE (AP) — The King County sheriff’s office says a Metro transit officer who was stabbed Friday at a Seattle bus shelter has been released from Harborview Medical Center.

Spokeswoman Cindi West says the sergeant will recover.

The officer who went to awaken a sleeping man was stabbed in the shoulder and also suffered a cut hand.

The officer held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived. They recovered two knives at the scene, in the Wallingford neighborhood.
