Suspect Arrested In MAX Stabbing

A man riding on a MAX Green Line train was stabbed Tuesday evening.

It happened just before 9 p.m. as the train was arriving at the Division Street Transit Station.

Multiple people called 9-1-1 to report the incident. As officers responded, callers provided a description of the suspect and the suspect's last known location and direction of travel to emergency call-takers. 

Officers provided the victim emergency first aid until emergency medical responders arrived on scene. Emergency medical personnel provided the man medical aid and transported him by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment of what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. 

Witnesses told officers the suspect had boarded a westbound TriMet bus. Officers contacted a person that witnesses described as the suspect on a TriMet bus near the intersection of Southeast Division Street and Southeast 82nd Avenue. The person was taken into custody without incident. 

25-year-old James Stanley was arrested for assault.
