Relatives: Love triangle fight leads to double stabbing in North Portland

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Two men were stabbed at a house in North Portland, during what relatives said was an alcohol-fueled argument between three partners.

Police said someone made a 911 hang up call from a house in the 8700 block of North Woolsey Avenue just after 6:30 p.m. Friday.

When officers arrived, they located the two men who had been stabbed. The victims told them the suspect possibly ran back into the house.

The victims were taken to the hospital and are expected to survive.

One of the victim's relatives said the stabbing occurred during an argument after the suspect had been drinking heavily. Athena Salvedor said her uncle was one of the men who got stabbed.

"He lives with two people and one of them is his life partner," said Salvedor. "I would say both of them are. We've always thought of them as both of his men. But I'd say there's one that's number one and then there's the second. They've been living together for years, as long as I can remember."

Police arrested the suspect a few blocks away from the home near North Dwight Avenue and Houghton Street.

The suspect's name has not been released and police have not said what charges they will face.

Police confirmed the suspect and the victims all lived together at the house.
