PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police are trying to find the man who stabbed a cafe employee in Old Town Wednesday evening.

It happened just after 7 p.m. at the Backspace Cafe on Northwest Fifth Avenue near Couch.

Paramedics took the employee to a hospital and he is expected to recover.

Police said the stabber fled the scene before they arrived.

Investigators think the culprit could be a man that cafe employees had kicked out of the restaurant in the past.

The stabber is described as a white man in his 20s, 5'8" tall and about 150 pounds with dirty blonde hair.

He was last seen wearing a brownish-green coat and carrying a messenger bag.

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call the Assault Detail at (503) 823-0400.
