PORTLAND, Ore. — Police identified a 62-year-old man as the suspect in a stabbing at a Portland Streetcar platform in the Lloyd District.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that police said Sunday that Robert Gholston stabbed another man several times at a streetcar platform on Saturday night.

Police said they received a report of a disturbance at 7:48 p.m. Saturday and found two men fighting. They took one man, identified as Gholston, into custody and began treating the other man for multiple stab wounds. He was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
