Man charged in Auburn Walmart stabbing

A Walmart employee allegedly stabbed his coworker after losing a fight.

A Federal Way man is facing an assault charge for allegedly stabbing his coworker at the Walmart in Auburn on March 30, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Quincy Henson, 26, was charged with first-degree assault in King County Superior Court on Friday. The prosecuting attorney’s office requested his bail be set at $250,000 and Henson remains in jail.

At approximately 4:40 a.m. on March 30, Henson was working with his 31-year-old male coworker when the two got into a verbal argument, according to charging documents.

The incident was witnessed by other employees and captured on security cameras, according to the charging documents.

The argument turned into a physical fight, Henson allegedly told investigators “I just attacked him,” suggesting that Henson was the one who initiated the fight, according to charging documents.

Henson’s coworker apparently overpowered Henson and tackled him to the ground, and the coworker stayed on top of Henson, according to charging documents. The fight on the ground lasted around 30 seconds before the coworker got up and walked away, according to charging documents.

Henson stated to police that at that point his coworker probably thought the fight was over but that the fight wasn’t over for him, according to charging documents. Henson then said that he felt disrespected and “went off,” according to charging documents.

Henson allegedly then either went to the breakroom to get a knife from his backpack or pulled a knife from his pocket and returned to where his coworker was working, according to charging documents.

Then Henson allegedly stabbed his coworker multiple times, and reportedly told investigators that stabbing his coworker was wrong but he couldn’t let it go, documents state.

Henson’s coworker was stabbed at least four times in the torso. When King County Medics arrived they determined his injuries were life-threatening and he was transported to Harborview Medical Center where he is in critical but stable condition, according to the charging documents.

Henson’s arraignment is schedule for April 14 at the King County Courthouse.
