On Tuesday November 7, 2017, at 10:35 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report that two people had been stabbed at Outside In, located at 1132 Southwest 13th Avenue.

Officers and emergency medical personnel arrived and contacted the victims. Emergency medical personnel provided both men medical aid. The men were transported by ambulance to an area hospital by ambulance with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

Preliminary information suggests the suspect became angry with the two male victims, who are staff members at Outside In, and stabbed them. Officers interviewed witness and obtained the suspect's description. The suspect's description was provided to officers searching the area. Officers located a suspect that matched the description near Southwest Park Avenue and Southwest Main Street. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Multnomah County Detention Center.

During the investigation, officers located one knife at Outside In and another knife on the suspect, shortly after he was taken into custody. Both knives were seized as evidence.

The suspect was identified as 22-year-old Ruben I. Eustaquio. Eustaquio was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Assault in the Second Degree (two counts) and Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact the Detective Division's Assault Detail at 503-823-0400.
