PORTLAND, Ore. -- A man was stabbed on a MAX train Tuesday evening and the suspect fled the scene via a TriMet bus.
The suspect, 25-year-old James T. Stanley, was later taken into custody without incident and taken to the Multnomah County Jail. He is being held on an accusation of second-degree assault.
The suspect and victim, who did not know each other, got into a verbal argument before the assault, according to investigators.
Officers responded to the Division Street station after dispatchers received several 911 calls at around 9 p.m. saying there had been a stabbing on the train. When officers arrived, they found a man with a knife wound.
The victim was quickly treated at the scene and taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Witnesses told police the suspect got on a westbound TriMet bus. A person who matched the description of the suspect was taken into custody near Southeast Division Street and 82nd Avenue.
Anyone with information about this stabbing is asked to the Detective Division's Assault Detail at 503-823-0479.
