PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office reported all suspects involved in a recent assault in Troutdale have been identified.

Deputies responded to a report of an attack at 1110 E. Historic Columbia River Highway around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. When they arrived, deputies found two brothers injured near the Sandy River.

A group of men was reportedly seen swimming across the river and confronted the victims before violently attacking them, according to MCSO. The group was seen on a video punching, kicking and stomping on at least one of the victims.

One of the men involved, who appears to be wearing salmon-colored shorts in the video, is seen using a large stick to repeatedly strike one victim.

The MCSO said Thursday that detectives had receieved more than 130 tips from the public and had identified all of the suspects involved in the attack. Detectives said they were interviewing suspects and gathering statements.

One of the victims of the assault said the suspects yelled homophobic slurs at them. Because of this, detectives are considering bias crime charges.
