Marion County Sheriff's office investigating incident early Sunday near the rodeo grounds

Detectives from the Marion County Sheriff's Office are investigating the stabbings of three men near the St. Paul Rodeo early Sunday morning.

According to a press release from the sheriff's office, deputies responded to a call at 2:17 a.m. at 4171 Blanchet Ave. to discover three men who had been the victims of a knife attack.

One man, 27-year-old Rex Rollins, of Wyoming, was in critical condition and was transported by Life Flight helicopter to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland. The other two victims – Alexander McHenry, 38, of Corvallis, and Ray Cooper, 29, of Arizona – were treated for minor injuries and released.

An MCSO public information officer said the office has yet to determine how many people were involved in the stabbing and added that no arrests have been made and the sheriff's office is continuing its investigation.
