PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A man is facing charges for allegedly stabbing a person in the chest during a fight in Portland's Old Town neighborhood.

Joshua M. Lund, 39, of Portland, was arrested Wednesday after the fight in early September near Northwest 3rd Avenue and Northwest Davis Street.

According to police, several people were involved in the fight Sept. 8 when officers responded around 2:30 a.m. to break it up.

One person suffered a non-life-threatening stab wound to the chest, according to law enforcement. The victim was treated at an area hospital and released.

Investigators seized a knife they believe was used in the stabbing and later served a search warrant at Lund’s home, where they seized additional evidence.

Lund when he was arrested in early September was charged with disorderly conduct in the second degree; he is now also facing charges of assault in the second degree and unlawful use of a weapon related to the stabbing.

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

Why did police need to search this suspect's home? Can anyone tell me what the tats on his neck mean, if there is a meaning?
