PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man was arrested after two men were attacked with a pair of scissors around 6:45 p.m. Friday at the Green Line MAX platform on Southeast Sunnyside Road, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said.
The suspect, Joseph Haddenham, allegedly confronted the two men and tried to stab them with scissors. The men, 24 and 25, were cut. They were checked out by medical personnel at the scene but declined more treatment.
On the scene, deputies said they found an intoxicated male, later identified as Haddenham, being restrained by several people. Officers said he said things that led them to believe the attack might have been racially motivated.
Haddenham was taken to a hospital for injuries sustained during the incident and was booked into Clackamas County Jail.
Authorities said Haddenham faces various charges including assault, unlawful use of a weapon, and bias crime. Haddenham’s bail was set at $548,000.
