Officers said a fight on a Portland Streetcar platform in the Lloyd District Saturday night ended with one person headed to the hospital with multiple stab wounds.

According to the Portland Police Bureau, officers responded to reports of a disturbance near Northeast 7th Avenue and Northeast Hassalo Street just after 7:45 p.m.

When they arrived at the scene the officers found two men fighting, with one of the men possessing a knife.

The officers took the man with the knife, 62-year-old Robert D. Gholston into custody and began providing medical aid to the other man, who had sustained several wounds. Medical personnel arrived at the scene and transported the victim to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Officers confiscated the knife at the scene, and detectives from the PPB Assault Detail and forensics teams responded to the scene to assist in the investigation.

Police said Gholston was lodged in the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of assault in the second degree and will be arraigned on Monday.

The Portland Police Bureau is asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the Assault Detail at 503-832-0479.
