A Gresham man was transported to a Portland trauma hospital late Sunday, July 17, for treatment of a stab wound.
The incident began at 11:10 p.m. when police responded to a report of two or more people fighting outside in the 2900 block of Northeast Rene Avenue, said Officer Adam Baker, Gresham police spokesman.
As officers arrived, another call came in reporting that someone in the fight had been stabbed, and that the victim was walking to Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center, which is across the street from where the fight broke out.
The victim, a 22-year-old Gresham man, had a stab or slice wound to his torso. He was transported Legacy Emanuel Hospital and Health Center, but his condition is unknown.
Gresham and Troutdale police questioned 'a number of people in the area who were involved in the fight,' in order to determine their role in the fight - whether they were victims, suspects or witnesses, Baker said. Police also arrested one person on a warrant unrelated to the incident. Detectives are still investigating but do not believe the incident is gang related.
