The suspect, 58-year-old Carlos Rodriguez-Lance, was arrested but was also transported to the hospital with injuries relating to the altercation that occurred prior to police arrival. Mr. Rodriguez-Lance was eventually transported and lodged into the Multnomah County Detention Center on one count of assault in the second degree, one count of unlawful use of weapon and on an outstanding parole violation warrant.


On Monday, May 13th, at 7;21 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the Old Town neighborhood on a disturbance call involving a weapon. Officers arrived and located a victim suffering from some sort of stab wound. The suspect was arrested nearby.

The PIO is not responding to the scene. An update will be provided when more information is gathered.
