(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Today, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced that 31-year-old Jonathan Creswell of Portland is being charged with one count of murder in the second degree constituting domestic violence and one count of unlawful use of a weapon constituting domestic violence.
Although the name of the victim may be known to media, the district attorney’s office has requested we refrain from publishing or broadcasting it until family notifications can be made. When the victim’s family is notified, an update will be provided.
This investigation started on September 21, 2020 at 9:15 a.m. when Portland Police responded to the 8400 block of North Interstate Place on reports of a stabbing.
It is alleged that Creswell used a knife to intentionally cause the death of the victim.
North Precinct officers took the suspect into custody upon their arrival and Homicide detectives later booked him into the Multnomah County Detention Center.
The probable cause affidavit in this case remains sealed pursuant to a judge’s ruling. An autopsy by the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office is scheduled to provide an official cause and manner of death.
If anyone has information about the stabbing and has not been contacted by investigators, they are asked to contact the Detective Shaye Samora at 503.823.0768 or Detective Rico Beniga at 503-823-0457.
A charging document is only an accusation of a crime. Creswell is innocent unless and until proven guilty.
