FOLLOWUP: Stabbing suspect Daniel Varela arrested

Three days after the King County Sheriff’s Office announced that Daniel Varela was charged and being sought in a White Center stabbing, he’s been arrested. KCSO spokesperson Sgt. Ryan Abbott just sent word of the arrest, saying an anonymous tip “stated he was seen at the Zintel Canyon Park in Kennewick. Members of the US Marshal’s Task Force located Varela sleeping in a brush area. He was arrested without incident and booked into the Benton County Jail in Kennewick.” The victim of the March 20th stabbing was discovered in a car that crashed near 17th/98th. Charging documents say it was not a random attack, that the victim knew Varela and had given Varela’s girlfriend a ride earlier that morning. Varela’s criminal history is described in court documents as including assault convictions.
