Police seek clues in 'random' stabbing on 82nd Avenue
Portland police are seeking the public's help to identify the suspect in what is believed to be a "random and unprovoked" stabbing.
Police say a woman was waiting for a bus around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 16 on Northeast 82nd Avenue near Schuyler Street when she was stabbed in the chest by an unknown male.
The suspect is believed to be a white man, in his 30s, standing five-foot-five, with a "pudgy" build, stubble on his neck and chin, and short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a plaid shirt, baggy jeans, white tennis shoes and a black or white baseball cap.
Unfortunately, the victim in the attack says she "lost control" of her 2-year-old Chihuahua, Damu, during the incident. Damu was last seen running on 82nd Avenue near the Banfield Pet Hospital.
"Damu does not have a collar or leash and has not been micro-chipped," officers say.
