PORTLAND, Oregon - On Wednesday, March 6, 2019, police entered the Hosford Middle School in the 2300 block of Southeast 28th Place. Multiple callers reported seeing an agitated male who was yelling and appeared to be armed with a hatchet. Additionally, the male was taking his clothing off. Hosford Middle School was placed into lockdown as a precaution.

Officers arrived and contacted the male who was armed with a hatchet and knife. Officers gave direction to the male, who threw the hatchet and knife down, then charged at the officers. The male was arrested and during the arrest, he stabbed a Sergeant with a smaller knife that was concealed in his hand. The Sergeant sustained a non-life threatening injury to the hand. Two knives, a hatchet, and a multi-tool were seized. (Photo attached)

The subject appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance. He was not injured, but was taken to an area hospital for evaluation due to his intoxication.

The Sergeant was treated and released for the non-life threatening injury.
