A man with a long criminal history stabbed a woman in northwest Portland and then fought with officers who attempted to arrest him, according to court documents.

Police responded to a report of a stabbing on the 900 block of Northwest Kearney Street at 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police located the woman and learned that she was stabbed at least twice in the "left upper buttocks," according to a probable cause affidavit.

The affidavit states Marques Demetrius Johnson, 43, and the woman are known to each other. She told him to leave, but as she walked away he followed behind her and stabbed her with a blue-handled knife, according to court documents.

Court documents state officers arrived and Johnson ignored their commands. The officers drew their guns and Tasers, believing Johnson was still armed with a knife.

A probable cause affidavit states a Taser was used on Johnson, but when an officer attempted to remove the probes, he kicked and attempted to bite the officer.

Johnson was eventually taken into custody on charges including first-degree assault and attempted assault of a public safety officer.

Investigators said a blue-handled knife was found in a nearby pond where witnesses said Johnson had thrown it into the water.

Court records show Johnson's criminal history includes 12 felony and five misdemeanor convictions. He is also facing charges of attempted burglary and coercion in a separate case.
