A night of drinking ended with one man recovering from stab wounds and another behind bars.

Charles Taylor, 43, and Kenneth Herkes, 27, had been drinking beer behind a gas station at Southeast 162 Avenue and Stark Street, according to Portland police.

The pair started to argue, and Herkes then stabbed Taylor in the shoulder with a kitchen knife, said officers.

Gresham police assisted in the search and arrested Herkes just a few blocks from the scene.

He will face second-degree assault charges.
