PORTLAND -- A man told police he was attacked by three others about 6 a.m. Wednesday on a MAX train near the Rose Quarter.

The men knocked him to the ground and stole items from a backpack, said Sgt. Pete Simpson. The victim traveled on to the Portland State University MAX station where he met with officers.

The victim did not require medical attention, Simpson said.

One of the attackers was described as an African-American man in his mid-20s with some facial hair and wearing a dark blue FUBU-style ski jacket, dark blue beanie, and dark blue pants with a white, embroidered tribal design.
