PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — On Friday evening, Central Precinct officers arrested a suspect in connection to a Multnomah neighborhood stabbing.
Just before 8:30 a.m. that morning, the Portland police said a woman was stabbed by an unknown man when she was in the laundry room of her apartment complex in the 2900 block of Southwest Dolph Court.
According to PPB, the woman fought the suspect, “suffering some additional injuries in the process.” The man left the scene.
