Officers Encounter Hostile Portland Crowd Trying to Help Woman Stabbed in the Chest

Per Andy Ngo:

A woman was stabbed in the chest in the protest park across from the Portland federal courthouse. When police responded to make a crime scene, violent protesters responded w/ hostility & someone ran away with the knife. Police are asking for it back.

The person who was stabbed is a Portland-area antifa militant. She’s being treated in the hospital for the wound to the breast.

From the Portland Police Bureau:

Officers have determined that the stabbing took place in Lownsdale Square park when an adult female suspect entered the park taking photos and/or video. An argument ensued between the female and other people in the park. During the argument, the female produced a knife and stabbed another female in the chest. The victim is being treated at a hospital and her injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

The suspect initially left but returned and is being interviewed. There is no known ongoing danger to the community related to this incident.

During the initial response, officers encountered a hostile crowd and additional police resources were summoned to try to conduct an investigation. Officers initially located the knife used in the stabbing, however as the officers were trying to secure a crime scene someone picked it up and ran off with it. Officers were unable to safely conduct an investigation due to the hostile crowd, and supervisors made the decision to disengage. As the knife is evidence, it should be returned to police custody. Anyone with information about the location of the knife should call police non-emergency at 503 823 3333.

Portland Police Assault Detectives have assumed the investigation.

I live in Portland. When I have checked Ngo’s claims about the Portland riots, they turn out to be accurate. This stands in stark contrast to the claims of “protestors” whose portrayal is consistently misleading and clearly exists in service of a dangerous false narrative.

With the mainstream press reporting fiction from Portland, Ngo has become the only window into the violent and incoherent riots nightly riots. It is very clear why he is under attack, and equally clear why no accusation should be entertained without compelling evidence.
