Police say they found an adult male suffering "non-life-threatening injuries" when they arrived. The man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
Police say the suspect in the stabbing is a tall, thin black man last seen wearing dark clothing.
Stabtown.com — an unofficial website that tracks stabbings in Portland — reports that the city is now on track to have more verified stabbings this year than last.
"Through the end of March last year there were 15 confirmed stabbings. 17 this year, and there's still four hours to go," the website noted on Sunday.
The investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to call (503) 823-3333.
