Police release video of 'unprovoked' Roseway stabbing
Portland Police continue to investigate the "violent, unprovoked attack" that left an 18-year-old woman suffering from life-threatening injuries.
Eleanore, a computer science student, was walking home from a friend's house in the 3200 block of Northeast 78th Avenue in the Roseway neighborhood around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 10 when she was stabbed multiple times by a stranger.
She was too hurt to pick up her phone, but her screams for help were answered by a neighbor. She was soon rushed to the hospital.
According to reports by our news partner, KOIN 6 News, Eleanore needed staples and stitches, and may have spinal cord damage. She has had trouble typing as well.
"I didn't even know I was getting stabbed for most of it," Eleanore told KOIN 6 News. "I was like 'I'm getting punched, why is this happening? I need to scream really loud so someone will help me, so I did that a lot."
The video shows a hooded person closely following behind Eleanore, then running away after the attack. Authorities continue to work to identify her assailant.
