PORTLAND – An argument over a game of beer pong during a New Year’s Eve party escalated into a stabbing early Tuesday morning, police said.
Investigators said 23-year-old Cole Miller was at a house party somewhere near 82nd Avenue and Fremont Street when the stabbing occurred. He was taken to Portland Adventist Medical Center for treatment.
“Officers learned that the victim got into an argument with another man over a game of beer pong, resulting in a fight,” said Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau. “The victim did not realize he'd been stabbed until friends noticed that he was bleeding and drove him to the hospital.”
Miller was later transferred by ambulance to a different Portland hospital, due to the severity of his injuries.
There is no suspect description at this time and officers have not located a crime scene. Anyone with information that may help investigators was urged to call detectives at (503) 823-0400.
