###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###
This morning, Tuesday February 26, 2013, at 9:10 a.m., Portland Police officers responded to the 1100 block of Northeast Broadway on the report of a stabbing. As officers were enroute to the call additional information was broadcast that there may be two victims and the suspects were last seen walking through the Safeway grocery store parking lot.
Officers arrived in the area and located both male victims, who have been transported to the hospital with serious but not believed to be life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses described the suspects to police, who located both in the neighborhood and took them into custody.
Preliminary information to officers is that the first victim came out of the Dollar Tree store and found his backpack missing, but saw a woman with it nearby. The man asked why she had the backpack and demanded it be returned when her male companion stabbed the victim.
A witness then sprayed pepper spray onto the male suspect who in turn stabbed the witness.
There are no outstanding suspects or danger to the community.
Additional details will be released as they become available.
