Detectives with Portland Police Bureau's Major Crimes Unit are asking for the public's help with identifying a group of individuals who violently attacked and stabbed a man.
On Tuesday, August 30, 2022, at 3:13 a.m., North Precinct Officers were dispatched to the 5400 Block of Northeast 57th Avenue on the reports of a stabbing. Officers arrived and found a man bleeding profusely from multiple stab wounds to his leg and torso. Officers immediately used their Individual First Aid Kits (IFAK) to apply a tourniquet to the victim's leg, and "chest seals" to his kidney area and upper back. AMR transported the victim to a local hospital for treatment.
Officers were able to locate the scene of the crime by following a blood trail from the victim, and were able to identify and collect video surveillance that captured the incident.
Based on a review of video evidence, detectives are looking to identify the four individuals who assaulted the victim. At one point during the recording, a male dressed in all black and wearing a black beanie can be seen stabbing the victim after the victim has fallen to the ground.
The suspects are described as:
- Suspect #1 appears to be a White or Hispanic male, is thin, and is wearing a black beanie, a black long sleeve shirt, black pants and black shoes. He is holding a shiny object that he eventually uses to stab the victim.
- Suspect #2 appears to be a White male, of medium build, and is wearing light-colored pants, black shoes and a black sweatshirt with large white lettering on the front.
- Suspect #3 appears to be a White male, is wearing a black shirt with white lettering on the front, black shoes and black pants with reflective color on the sides.
- Suspect #4 appears to be a Black male, is wearing a blue hoodie, dark-colored shorts and light-colored shoes.
Anyone who has information about the assault or believes they can identify any of the suspects or their vehicle (pictured with its lights on), please contact Detective Matthew Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org and reference Case #22-233400.
