News Release
Stabbing Suspect Indicted for Measure 11 Assault - 09/26/22

An assault suspect identified as 48-year-old Noah Douglas Kronsteiner of Portland was indicted last week by a Washington County Grand Jury for assaulting two other men in Beaverton on September 13, 2022.

 

Beaverton Police officers were dispatched to the report of a stabbing at the intersection of SW Oleson Rd. and SW Garden Home Rd. just after 3:00 PM on Tuesday September 13, 2022. Upon arrival, officers found two victims, 51-year-old Juan Rodriguez of Portland and 47-year-old Michael Pickens of Portland, both suffering from stab wounds. Pickens had also been sprayed with mace. 

 

Officers discovered the suspect, Kronsteiner, inside of the Bulldog Deli, located nearby at 7321 SW Garden Home Road. Kronsteiner was suffering from stab wounds of his own. 

 

Beaverton Police detectives began an investigation into the incident. After reviewing surveillance footage and speaking to numerous witnesses, detectives determined that prior to the incident, Pickens was driving his vehicle southbound on SW Oleson Rd. While he was stopped in traffic, Kronsteiner began yelling and screaming at him. Kronsteiner then sprayed Pickens with mace while Pickens was inside his vehicle. Detectives say Kronsteiner’s attack on Pickens was unprovoked. Pickens exited his vehicle after being sprayed with mace and Kronsteiner then stabbed Pickens. 

 

Rodriguez, who was in the park nearby, witnessed Kronsteiner’s assault on Pickens and came to Pickens’ aide. When Rodriguez did so, Kronsteiner also stabbed him. Detectives say to defend himself and Pickens, Rodriguez armed himself with a foldable pocketknife and stabbed Kronsteiner. Kronsteiner subsequently fled on foot to the Bulldog Deli.

 

All involved parties received medical treatment for their injuries and are expected to survive. Kronsteiner was arrested and lodged in the Washington County Jail after his release from a local hospital. Kronsteiner was indicted on charges of Assault in the Second Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing, Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, and Unlawful Use of Mace.
