Man Stabbed After Answering Door in Portland

PORTLAND, OR – On Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 7:16p.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a fight involving a knife in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 15800 block of Southeast Stark Street.

Upon arrival, officers located a victim bleeding heavily from what appeared to be stab wounds. The victim was holding down the suspect, later identified as 25 year-old Jonathan Gilberto Camara of Portland.

Officers and detectives conducted an investigation and learned the victim was in their apartment when there was a knock at the door. When the victim asked who was there, there was no response. The victim then opened their apartment door and was immediately attacked by Camara. A fight took place just inside the victim’s residence and ended out in the parking lot of the complex.

The victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was later released. The victim did not know the Camara, who was also transported to an area hospital from minor injuries sustained in the fight. Camara was later transported to the Multnomah County Detention Center after being arrested for Attempt Murder II, Assault II, Burglary I, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
