The name of the victim, identified as a 21-year-old male suffering from non-life threatening wounds, was not immediately released.

According to police, at 1:03 p.m. on Oct. 12, East Precinct officers responded to Southeast 86th Avenue and Woodstock Boulevard on the report of an assault and stabbing.

Officers and medical personnel arrived and found the victim suffering from multiple injuries. He was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment.

Officers learned that the victim, his girlfriend, and their three children were walking along Woodstock Boulevard when three males approached them and had a brief verbal exchange with the victim. The suspects then began attacking the victim, and ultimately he was stabbed in one of his legs.

police say that, due to the victim's previous gang affiliation and the description of the suspects, investigators from the Gang Enforcement Team responded to conduct an investigation.

The suspects are described as three male Hispanics or African Americans. The suspects fled the scene in a dark-colored, newer sedan.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Gang Enforcement Team at (503) 823-4106.
