Hood River man says he was stabbed by brother


The victim is in critical condition

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Hood River man alleges his brother stabbed him in an attempted murder case local deputies are now investigating.

Hood River deputies were called out to the 5600-block of Trout Creek Ridge Road on Friday, November 1, by a 911 call from Hans Severinsen, 35, who said he had been stabbed in the chest by his brother. The suspect, Leif Sorensen, had already left the scene before authorities arrived.

Severinsen was taken to a hospital in a helicopter. He was listed as in critical condition, said the sheriff’s office.

Deputies found Sorensen roughly a mile away from the Trout Creek Ridge home after a brief search and arrested him. He now faces charges of assault and attempted murder, said the sheriff’s office.

This case is being investigated by the Mid-Columbia Major Crimes Task Force and the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office.
