On Friday, Jan. 11, Gresham Police arrested and charged a 16-year-old suspect with attempted murder in the stabbing of a 17-year-old girl in the Riviera Garden apartments in the 900 block of Southeast 190th Avenue.

On Saturday night, Dec. 29, several people accosted the victim as she was walking in between adjacent apartments. Tenants at one of the apartments heard a tap on the window and found the unconscious victim outside. The victim was rushed to Oregon Health and Science University in serious condition, and was unable to speak with detectives for almost two weeks.

Police believe the attack was gang-related, and that the suspect knows the victim. The other suspects are still at large, and police are asking anyone with information to call the tip line at 503-618-2719, or 888-989-3505.
