GRESHAM -- Gresham police want the public's help in identifying two men who witnessed a fight Jan. 25 on the MAX platform at the 162nd/Burnside stop.

One of the men in the fight ended up getting stabbed, said Sgt. Claudio Grandjean.

The entire episode was captured on video.

About 5:20 p.m., Armon L. Jackson, 21, and Alex Venegas, 27, started fighting on the westbound platform. A third person can be seen trying to break up the fight, police said.

A fourth person stepped off the train and appeared to try and help Venegas. The unidentified men eventually stopped the fight.

Jackson suffered superficial stab wounds and has since recovered.

The person who attempts to stop the fight, Grandjean said, is seen wearing the two-color coat with the number 32. The person who appears to help Venagas is wearing a dark leather coat with a hoodie underneath and blue jeans. Venagas is wearing jeans and a mid-length coat, while Jackson, who has a long ponytail, is wearing a sleeveless light colored shirt and athletic shorts.

Neither Jackson nor Venegas have been charged though both have been contacted by police. Anyone with information was asked to call Detective Tony Cobb at (503) 618.2365.
