2 suspects arrested after stabbing on MAX platform
Two people have been arrested after Portland Police say a man was stabbed at the Skidmore Fountain MAX stop in downtown Portland.
Central Precinct officers responded to reports of a disturbance around 12:17 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 31, acccording to a news release.
Police alleged that Daniel Salcido was stabbed by Robert Emerson Fogelman, 39, following some sort of "verbal argument."
"Mr. Salcido put his hands up, and Fogelman began to swing his open blade at Mr. Salcido, striking him in the hand and causing a deep gash which immediately began to bleed," a prosecutor wrote, apparently referring to security footage.
The authorities say the victim was treated at the scene and later transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
According to court records, Fogelman dropped the knife, which was then picked up by his girlfriend, 45-year-old Nenita Rose Gatlin.
Police allege to have found the knife in Gatlin's pocket.
Fogelman is facing a charge of second-degree assault. He has two felonies and 11 misdemeanors on his record, according to court files.
Gatlin is facing a charge of tampering with physical evidence.
Fogelman remains in custody while Gatlin has been released, according to booking records. Police say anyone with information should contact the Assault Detail at 503-823-0479.
