A 21-year-old man was arrested in Tukwila in connection with a stabbing in Seattle.

A sixteen-year-old was rushed to Harborview Medical Center on Friday evening, after being stabbed in the back five times.  It happened on Second Avenue, between Pike and Pine.

Police say the young victim was with some friends when the stabbing took place at about 7:45 p.m.  It appears the teen likely knew his attacker, but police say those who witnessed the attack wouldn't cooperate with their investigation.

Second Avenue was partially closed for about two hours, as detectives worked to piece together what happened.

The teen was in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center.
