University of Oregon Police are investigating a stabbing that happened in the northeast corner of a UO-owned parking lot near Kincaid Street and 13th Avenue Alley, just south of Alpha Omega House, on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at around 1:30 a.m.
The 21-year old male victim, not affiliated with the UO, went by a private car to McKenzie-Willamette Hospital in Springfield with non-life-threatening injuries before police arrived. According to witnesses, the victim and suspect had been involved in conversation or argument in the area before the incident in the parking lot. The victim and a witness described the suspect as a black male with medium-toned skin, just taller than 6 feet, average build, apparently mid-20s in age, no obvious facial hair, dressed in all black clothing including a hoodless coat.
No arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about this or similar incidents should call UOPD at 541-346-2919.
