Police ask for assistance to identify Portland stabbing suspect

PORTLAND, Ore. — Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect in a stabbing that took place Oct. 20 at the Hollywood Transit Center.

The incident happened at around midnight on the station platform. The suspect stabbed another person in the chest, causing serious physical injury, and then ran in an unknown direction, according to a news release from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office Transit Police Division.

The suspect is described as male, about 5-foot-10-inches tall and in his 20s. He has a tattoo of a “bio-hazard” symbol on the outside of his left forearm just below the elbow, police said.

He was wearing a gray beanie, green t-shirt, gray sweatpants and gray and white high-top shoes similar to Vans at the time of the incident, police said.

Police released several photos of the suspect who appear to have been captured by surveillance cameras at the station.
