SEATTLE -- A 34-year-old homeless man and drug addict showed up at his mother's Central District apartment Tuesday morning and allegedly stabbed her in the face multiple times. Now, the Seattle Police Department is looking for the man considered to be very dangerous.

According to police, Kevin Ross buzzed himself into the apartment building near 18th Avenue and East Madison Street around 4:30 a.m. When his mother opened the door, he reportedly yelled, "This is what you get," and stabbed her in the face.

Bleeding heavily from three deep stab wounds to her face, as well as cuts to her finger and chest, Ross' mother fell to the kitchen floor, according to police.

Ross reportedly left when his mother's boyfriend, who was in the apartment at the time, came to see what was happening.

Officers were unable to find Ross, who relatives say is homeless, suffers from mental illness and uses crack.

Ross is described as a black man, approximately 6-feet-2-inches tall and 240 pounds. He has a tattoo that says "Mr. Ross" on his neck, a tattoo of an eyeball on his Adam's apple and a tattoo of a grim reaper on his forearm. He is known to hang out around several Central District parks.

Ross' mother was transported to Harborview Medical Center following the attack.
