News Releases
Stabbing Investigation Underway - 07/12/24

An investigation is underway after a man is believed to have stabbed his mother several times.

At 12:54pm today (7/12/24) Tigard Police officers were called to the Meadow Creek Apartments on SW North Dakota Street. Officers learned a 48-year-old woman who lives at the complex came to a neighbor’s door saying she had just been stabbed by her son.

Officers quickly arrived and got the victim from the apartment. She was taken to the hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening. 

While officers were on scene, the 28-year-old suspect called 911 from a nearby business to turn himself in. Officers believe the stabbing happened in the woman’s apartment unit, and the son walked to the commercial area afterward, where he was safely arrested. He will be booked into the Washington County Jail on charges including first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

Several witnesses were in the area during this incident. If you saw or heard something that may help in this investigation and have not talked to a police officer, please call non-emergency dispatch at 503-629-0111.

The names of those involved are not being released at this time, while officers work to contact additional family members.

Man Arrested in Stabbing Investigation - 07/09/24

A man is in jail after officers believe he stabbed another man several times at a local transit center.

On Sunday, July 7th at 9:37AM, officers were dispatched to a disturbance with a weapon at the Tigard Transit Center on SW Commercial Street. Officers learned two men had been fighting and one of them stabbed the other several times, then took off. Responding officers worked to control the victim’s bleeding, and the victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Additional officers worked with witnesses and TriMet to get a description of the suspect. Officers learned he had taken another bus into Sherwood, and he was safely arrested there. He’s been identified as Diego Armando Gonzalez-Hernandez, age 22. He was taken to the Washington County Jail and is facing charges of first-degree assault (a Measure 11 crime), unlawful use of a weapon, harassment, interfering with making a report and an outstanding arrest warrant.

Thankfully, the victim in this case is expected to survive. He is not being identified at this time.

We’d like to thank our partners at the Sherwood Police Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, TriMet, Oregon City Police Department and King City Police Department for their help in this case.
