PORTLAND – A man was stabbed after a dispute near the Lloyd Center Mall Friday evening, police said.
The victim, who police said is in his 30s, was stabbed in Holladay Park in Northeast Portland. He then ran across the street and into the mall where he called 911. Officers found him on the lower level near the ice rink just before 7 p.m., said Sgt. Pete Simpson with the Portland Police Bureau.
Officers arrested 45-year-old Tony Henriques and recovered a knife believed to have been used in the stabbing.
Investigators learned that Henriques and the victim were in an earlier dispute that may have led to the stabbing, Simpson said.
Henriques was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and charged with second-degree assault.
The victim was taken to the hospital with traumatic injuries and is in critical condition. He was alert and conscious at the scene, Simpson said.
