Powell Blvd. lounge stabbing injures two
After a reported ruckus at the "DV8 Lounge", at 5021 S.E. Powell Boulevard, at 5:39 p.m. on Sunday, May 27, East Precinct officers were called to the club.
A caller to the 9-1-1 Center said there had been a disturbance among several people at the lounge, after a customer was asked to leave the premises.
"Officers located two people with injuries; emergency medical personnel provided medical aid to those injured," Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley.
One of the involved individuals, who witnesses identified as the customer who had been asked to leave, suffered what were believed to be serious but not-life-threatening injuries, Burley added. "The customer's injuries were possibly caused by a bladed instrument, such as a knife."
That person was taken to a hospital for evaluation and treatment, Burley said; the other cut person, an employee of the lounge, wasn't injured sufficiently to require being taken to a hospital.
Detectives from the PPB Detective Division's Assault Detail took the lead in the investigation, and were assisted by criminalists with the Forensic Evidence Division.
"All subjects involved in the disturbance have been contacted by investigators, and there is no reason to believe there is continuing danger to the public," said Burley.
