PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A 16-year-old boy will be tried as an adult for a stabbing that critically injured another teen at the Hollywood Transit Center in northeast Portland.

Emergency crews responded to the 4100 block of Northeast Halsey Street at 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Witnesses reported seeing around 20 "kids" that were fighting, leading to a stabbing.

Geavony Amor Ferreira, 16, was with his mother, sisters and possibly others when he saw someone he had an ongoing dispute with, according to court documents.

A fight ensued and witnesses said Ferreira was "being beaten badly," according to a probable cause affidavit, when his sister and mother became involved in the confrontation.

The affidavit states Ferreira armed himself with brass knuckles and punched another 17-year-old boy involved in the altercation multiple times, causing the victim to fall to the ground where Ferreira and others continued attacking him.

Witnesses told police Ferreira had a knife in his hand and they described the victim suffering multiple stab wounds to the neck and chest, according to court documents.

Ferreira then ran from the bus depot to the MAX train station, court documents state, and was later found by officers.

A probable cause affidavit states Ferreira was taken into custody and officers found brass knuckles in a purse belonging to one of the females who was with him.

The affidavit states Ferreira initially denied any involvement beyond a verbal argument with someone at the transit station, but as the interview with detectives went on, he admitted fighting with someone and then pushing another person who was near his sister.

However, he denied the stabbing.

"He wanted to know where the knife was, and demanded to know how he could be charged with stabbing someone if police had not found a knife," a probable cause affidavit states.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of multiple stab wounds, including to his throat. Initial reports indicated he was dying from his injuries, but surgical intervention appeared to have saved him, according to court documents.

His condition was not known Tuesday.

Ferreira appeared in court Tuesday on the Measure 11 charge of first-degree assault.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Detective Todd Prosser at 503-823-9320, todd.prosser@portlandoregon.gov.
