Police say a man was stabbed at a popular skate park during an argument Friday night. 

At about 10:30 p.m. officers responded to Burnside Skatepark, located under the Burnside Bridge on Southeast Second Avenue.

Upon arrival they found a man in the street, suffering from a stab wound to the leg that did not appear to be life-threatening. The victim was transported to a Portland hospital for treatment.

Police say the suspect was tracked down and arrested without incident a short distance away, on the Eastbank Esplanade near the Steel Bridge.

The suspect has been identified as Jeremy Moore, age 29.  He was charged with one count of assault and lodged in the Multnomah County Jail.  His bail was set at $250,000.

Moore is scheduled to appear in court to hear charge Monday.
