In the wee hours of Sunday, February 26, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) East Precinct officers were sent up steep and twisting Aspen Summit Drive, responding to a “Stabbing-with Weapon” call from the “Mountain Scott by the Brook Apartments”.

“Officers arrived to find two people who appeared to have non-life-threatening stab wounds; some of the injuries were reportedly more like cuts than stab wounds,” PPB Public Relations Officer Lt. Nathan Sheppard told East Portland News. “In their investigation, officers learned this incident was the result of an argument between the two individuals. One was was transported to a local hospital.”
