Portland Police were called to the area of NE 102nd Avenue and I-84 on the report of multiple people being stabbed in a nearby greenspace.
After searching for several minutes, officers located three victims in a greenspace that was later determined to be within the City of Maywood Park. The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, which provides law enforcement services to the City of Maywood Park, then assumed responsibility for the investigation.
As deputies arrived at the location, a K-9 team located and arrested the suspect not far from the crime scene. The suspect, along with three adult victims, were transported to local hospitals for treatment of serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
The initial investigation has revealed that all four parties were local transients and had a dispute over property.
26-year-old Zaire Johnson was arrested on charges of assault and unlawful use of a weapon.
