HAPPY VALLEY, OR (KPTV) – Two people were hospitalized after a standoff involving a SWAT team late Monday morning at a home in Happy Valley, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies just after 11 a.m. responded to multiple reports that a man armed with a knife had stabbed someone near Southeast 162nd and Southeast Misty Drive.

Deputies arrived to find the man barricaded inside the house and still armed with a knife.

They also contacted a 40-year-old woman with multiple stab wounds, according to the sheriff’s office, who says she was transported to an area hospital in serious condition.

A SWAT team and a K9 officer made entry into the house and found the suspect lying on a bed with multiple stab wounds to the chest. He was transported to an area hospital in serious condition, according to deputies.

The relationship between the man and the woman was not immediately clear. The sheriff’s office says the investigation into this case is ongoing.
