Creston-Kenilworth domestic dispute turns violent
Neighbors looked on as Central Precinct officers cordoned off the porch and side of a neatly-kept house in the 4100 block of S.E. 29th Avenue, just south of Gladstone Street on Wednesday, March 7, due to an "Assault with Weapon" call dispatched at 10:58 a.m.
"I heard the brothers who live there squabbling, then the police and an ambulance came," a resident walking in the area told THE BEE.
"Preliminary information suggests this was a disturbance between brothers," agreed Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley. "Both brothers were injured during the disturbance, and both men were taken to a local hospital by ambulance suffering non-life-threatening injuries."
The Domestic Violence Reduction Unit responded to the scene and continued the investigation until about 5:00 p.m. that day.
