On November 16, 2003, at about 3:00 a.m., a man heard what sounded like cars tires popping outside his home near SE 52nd and Division. He went outside to investigate and saw two men crouched by a parked car. He saw one of them puncture a tire with a sharp object. He followed the men and confronted them about the crime he witnessed.
As he confronted them, one suspect began stabbing him. The two suspects ran off, and the victim walked to the Plaid Pantry at SE 50th and Division. He yelled for help, and told the clerk he had been stabbed. He went back outside and collapsed. He was transported to Oregon Health and Science University Hospital where he was treated.
Police found several cars in the area with punctured tires. They searched the area with a K9, but were unable to find any suspects.
The suspect who stabbed the victim is described as a 25 to 30 year old while male, with gray or light blue “Siberian Husky” eyes, curly dirty blonde hair with a “weird sheen,” pulled into a pony tail that went half way down his back. He is about 5’10”, 170 pounds. He had some facial hair. He was wearing a gold “s link chain” around his neck, and a white button down shirt under a black leather jacket. An artist sketch of the stabbing suspect is attached.
The second suspect is described as a white male in his late 20’s, 5’11” and thin, wearing a blue jacket.
