PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One person was injured in a stabbing that happened in the Lloyd District Saturday morning.

Portland police said at 11:20 a.m. they responded to the report of a stabbing near Northeast Lloyd Boulevard under the Interstate 5 Freeway.

When officers arrived on scene they found a woman suffering from a stab wound and she was being given first-aid by a community member.

The woman was transported to a local hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

Police said they detained Maxville A. Sinclair, 55, as a person of interest at the scene and determined at this time that he is not the suspect in the stabbing.

However, Sinclair was taken to Multnomah County Jail because of an outstanding warrant for possession of methamphetamine - misdemeanor treatment.

Northeast Lloyd Boulevard between Northeast Oregon Street and Northeast 1st Avenue was closed while officers continued the investigation.

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to contact Detective Chris Traynor at 503-823-0889, or christopher.traynor@portlandoregon.gov.
