Because the mostly-residential area north of Reed College is typically quiet, neighbors were startled, late on Sunday, June 9, when emergency first-responders rolled in with lights flashing and sirens blaring.
At 10:22 p.m. that evening, six Central Precinct officers, the crew from Woodstock Fire Station 25's Engine Company, and an ambulance pulled up near the corner of 37th Avenue and Steele Street.
"With all of the lights and commotion, we came out to see what was going on, but it wasn't clear," neighbor Bill Gibbins told THE BEE as he watched some of the units depart.
Several officers were still looking for evidence just north of the corner of 37th Avenue, in yards and in the street.
"This was a domestic violence incident, where someone was cut," said Portland Police spokesperson Sergeant Brad Yakots.
"A person, with non-life threatening injuries, was transported to a local hospital for medical evaluation," Yakots added. The investigation continues.
