Robert Moran-Vasquez told police he has gang ties in California

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – The suspect accused of stabbing two people on board a Greyhound Bus as it headed to Boise, Idaho is facing a 34-count grand jury indictment.

Robert Moran-Vasquez is charged with attempted murder, assault and unlawful use of a weapon. He is also charged with 28 counts recklessly endangering.

Detectives with the East Multnomah County Major Crimes Team arrested Robert Moran-Vasquez on Nov. 29 after he tried to take over the bus as it was headed eastbound on I-84, just east of Troutdale.

The bus driver, Clint Lawson, was stabbed in his neck but survived.

The second person stabbed in the incident was Stephen Danca who detectives say stepped up to help protect the bus when Moran-Vasquez made his approach towards the steering wheel.

According to court documents, Moran-Vasquez told police that he has gang ties to California and that he was a known fugitive.

Moran-Vasquez remains in custody.
