On Saturday, October 27, 2018, at 11:50 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to The Venue Gentlemen's Club, located at 9950 Southeast Stark Street, on the report that two people were stabbed.

When officers arrived, they located two adult male victims suffering from what were believed to be non-life-threatening stab wounds. Emergency medical personnel arrived and provided the men emergency medical aid.

Officers searched the area for the suspect, but no one matching the suspect's description was located.

The victims refused medical transport by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries, electing to drive themselves in a private vehicle to an area hospital.

Based on preliminary information, officers believe a disturbance occurred in the bathroom of the The Venue Gentlemen's Club involving at least three people. During the disturbance the victims were stabbed. After the victims were injured the suspect left the location in a vehicle.

The suspect was described as a white male, 30 to 35-years-old, 5'8" tall, with a muscular build and short brown hair, wearing a black T-shirt with white writing, and armed with a knife. Officers believe the suspect left in 1992 white BMW 525 series with Washington license plate "BLW8072."

Anyone who sees the suspect or suspect's vehicle should contact 9-1-1.

Anyone with information about this stabbing investigation should contact the Portland Police Bureau Detective Division's Assault Detail at 503-823-0479.
