32-year-old Mitchell Field has been arrested and booked after claiming to be the victim in a stabbing. Portland Police arrived at the Holgate MAX Platform and found Field's arm had been cut. He told them that a 13-year-old boy stabbed him for no reason. However, after talking with witnesses and checking the security camera tape, they found that Field was actually the aggressor.
Sergeant Pete Simpson says they believe Field was actually harassing and even strangling the boy while also messing with his sister's scooter. The boy reportedly warned Field that he had better back off or he was going to get stabbed.
