Stabbing at Pioneer Square

July 30, 2009 00:00


Today at approximately 12:00 p.m., Portland Police responded to Pioneer Square, located at 701 SW 6th Avenue, on a call of a stabbing that had just occurred. When officers arrived they found a 21-year-old man who had been stabbed. The victim was transported to the hospital and was admitted with a non-life threatening wound.

Officers at the scene located the female suspect in the area and took her into custody. A second subject was also detained at the scene but was released a few minutes later. Portland Police Assault Detectives were assigned to this case and are investigating. Detectives believe that this stabbing incident stemmed from a domestic violence situation and the investigation is ongoing.

The suspect in custody has not yet been charged and is being interviewed by Detectives. I will release the name and photograph when detectives release information concerning any charges against the suspect.
