Man arrested for stabbing outside adult club

Victim did not realize he was bleeding

Portland police have arrested a man involved in an early Tuesday morning fight and stabbing outside a downtown adult club.

James Lee Moultrie, 21, was charged with first- and second-degree assault. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and will be arraigned on Wednesday.

According to police, at 1:50 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to the report of a fight outside Spyce Gentlemen's Club, at Northwest Second Avenue and Couch Street. Officers arrived and contacted several people who had been involved in a fight, but did not identify any willing victims or suspects.

Then, at 3:18 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to Portland Adventist Medical Center on the report of a walk-in stabbing victim. Officers contacted Pui Ho, 32, of Northeast Portland, who told them he was stabbed while trying to break up a fight in front of Spyce Gentlemen's Club a few hours earlier.

Ho said he did not realize he was stabbed until a friend noticed that he was bleeding from the right side of his torso and lower back.

Assault detectives responded to the hospital and began an investigation that led to Moultrie's arrest.
