An altercation took place in a group home on SE Alder Street near 143rd Avenue, on Monday evening, October 5. Portland Police Bureau East Precinct officers were alerted and dispatched to the location at 8:26p.m.

Arriving officers found “an adult female victim, with a stab wound to the lower back; she was transported by ambulance to a hospital,” according to Public Information Officer Sergeant Kevin Allen. “The injury was treated [and found] to be non-life threatening.”

An ambulance races off, taking the stabbing victim to a local hospital.

During the investigation, officers learned the suspect and the victim live together in the group home, Allen revealed. “A knife was recovered and seized as evidence,” he said. “The victim is recovering from her injury, and the suspect faces Assault charges.”

Facing two Felony charges after being accused of stabbing another group home resident is 20-year-old Olivia Doyle-Joseph.

Arrested was 20-year-old Olivia Doyle-Joseph, who was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC) on charges of Assault in the Second Degree, Assault in the Fourth Degree, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, and Harassment.

At her arraignment in the Multnomah County Circuit Court, a judge “released” two of the four charges – Assault in the Fourth Degree and Harassment – both Misdemeanors.

But, Doyle-Joseph still faces the two Felony charges of Assault in the Second Degree and Unlawful Use of a Weapon. Consequently, Doyle-Joseph remains in custody at MCDC in lieu of $255,000 combined bail.
