A man was injured by another man in a stabbing Wednesday morning in southeast Portland, according to police.

At the scene, police said officers along with medical personnel found a man in his 50s with a stab wound. He was transported by ambulance to receive treatment for his injury, which was described as non-life-threatening.

In their preliminary investigation, officers believe two men were involved in a dispute over the use of the can recycling machine outside the Jackson's Shell Gas Station. The dispute led to the stabbing, police said.
