PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A man is recovering from serious injuries after being stabbed in the Piedmont neighborhood early Thursday morning.

Officers got the report of a stabbing in the parking lot of a restaurant in the 8000 block Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard at 5:17 a.m.

After finding the suspect nearby, investigators learned he approached the victim in the drive-thru of the restaurant, where the victim was ordering breakfast. That’s when police say the suspect suddenly and without being provoked attacked the customer and stabbed him multiple times.

During the arrest the suspect, 45-year-old Aaron J. Knight, was found to have methamphetamine on him.

Knight was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder in the second degree and assault in the second degree.

Whoa whoa wait a second here. You mean the decriminalized meth possession doesn't outweigh the attempted murder charge? That doesn't sound right for DA Mike Schmidt's agenda.


Cant book him for meth, it is legal now.


Mingus Mapps' after school program would have prevented this.
