TikTok Video Shows Portland Protester Bleeding After Being Stabbed in the Chest

Video footage has emerged showing a female protester in Portland, Oregon, bleeding from the chest after being allegedly stabbed by another woman.

The clip, which was posted on TikTok, shows a woman wearing a black face-covering pulling down her top to reveal a knife wound, while several others follow another woman.

The video shows the first woman recording repeatedly yell out "call the police" as the second woman continues to walk away while holding what appears to be a knife in her hand.

The person filming then tries to stop the others from crowding around the second woman while asking her to drop the knife.

Portland Police confirmed that they were dispatched to a report of a stabbing at Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street at 6:22 p.m. on Monday, August 3.

Officers then located a victim, who was sent to hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

Warning: Graphic video

Police said the stabbing occurred in Lownsdale Square park when an adult female suspect entered the park taking photos and/or video. She then got into an argument with another female, who then stabbed her in the chest before leaving the scene.

The suspect returned a short while later and was questioned. Portland Police did not confirm whether an arrest has been made but said there is no known ongoing danger to the community in relation to the incident.

Police said they also "encountered a hostile crowd" at the scene while trying to investigate the stabbing and additional police resources were summoned.
Officers originally located the knife believed to have been used in the stabbing.

However, someone picked it up and ran away with it while police were trying to secure the crime scene.

Detectives are now urging who knows where the knife is to contact police.

"Officers were unable to safely conduct an investigation due to the hostile crowd, and supervisors made the decision to disengage," Portland Police said in a statement. "As the knife is evidence, it should be returned to police custody."

Portland Police have been contacted for further comment.

The incident occurred on what was the 68th straight evening of Black Lives Matter and police brutality protests in Portland. On the same night, dozens of demonstrators clashed with police after gathering outside the Penumbra Kelly Building on East Burnside Street, which is used by the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.

Anyone with information about the location of the knife should call police non-emergency at 503 823 3333.
