Police said a murder suspect called the victim he allegedly stabbed to death an “anti-masker” soon after last weekend’s incident outside a Bothell, Washington, apartment building, the Seattle Times reported.
Charging documents say John Huynh and two friends exited the Villas at Beardslee apartments just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday and headed to a car parked nearby where Huynh’s wife was waiting, the paper said.
With that a man — a stranger and fellow resident of the apartment building — flashed his middle finger, and Huynh stopped to ask him if he had flipped him off or waved to him, the Times said, citing charging papers.
The pair faced each other about four or five feet apart when the man lunged forward, stabbed Huynh in the chest, and then ran back into the building, the paper said, citing the charges. . .

Williams’ mother told police her son ran into their apartment yelling for her and “told her that an anti-masker had attacked him,” a Bothell detective wrote in charging papers, the Times said, adding that “she told him to show her where he was hurt, and he initially said he was not hurt, but he thought he hurt the other guy.” (Read more from “Police: Murder Suspect Called Victim an ‘Anti-Masker’ Just After Stabbing” HERE)
