The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office will decide what to do with the case of the 14-year-old who allegedly stabbed a 15-year-old at a prearranged fight at the Gateway Transit Station on Sunday evening.

According to the police, at 7:42 p.m., East Precinct and Transit Police Division officers responded to the report of a stabbing at the station, located at 1101 Northeast 99th Avenue.

When the officers arrived, they located the victim, a 15-year-old male, suffering from traumatic but not life-threatening injuries. He was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment.

Officers also located the suspect, a 14-year-old male, and took him into custody.

The preliminary investigation indicates that all parties involved know each other and there was a group of people meeting at the station to fight when the stabbing occurred.

Police subsequently released the suspect to his parents.
