Stabbing investigation

(GRESHAM, Ore.) - Gresham Police are investigating an assault that sent a local 17-year old girl to the hospital with several stab wounds last night just after 11:00 PM.

Police were dispatched to the Riviera Garden apartments at 900 SE Yamhill, after the residents there found the victim laying in the dirt outside their apartment.

Sgt. Claudio Grandjean with Gresham Police, says witnesses from Apt. 128 told police that the victim who lives in an adjacent apartment had been over visiting and socializing with several people.

The victim told one of the witnesses she was going to go to Apt. 127 to speak with her mother. Shortly after she left, the residents of Apt. 128 heard a knock on their window. When they came out to investigate they found the 17-year old barely conscious outside the apartment. They carried her inside and called 911. The victim was transported to OHSU, where she underwent surgery.

Police Detectives were called out and are continuing to investigate. There are no suspects named at this time but witnesses reported seeing four Hispanic males, approximately 18 to 25 years in age, running from the area.

Criminals are criminals, but some seem to be more criminal than others as the U.S. Justice Department's database clearly shows...Dale you could ask a Multnomah County Sheriff's deputy if what you said was inaccurate...he would say you were right, based on the demographic criminal data. It's the facts, but some simply cannot understand that their opinion when based on ignorance simply is no different than putting your head in the sand.

Criminals are criminals and it has nothing to do with race, skin color, national origin etc. Ah well...

Well Dale, it certainly has to be about race doesn't it? You degrade yourself and others by assuming people already disliked by bigots like you over the color of their skin have half a chance at living a normal and healthy life. Keep taking more away from them and watch how much worse your life becomes. You will likely head the list because you have bad karma sir and low intelligence; not great tools for getting through this life.
