On January 28th, 2016 at approximately 10:47 PM, Sherwood Police were called to 16220 SW Langer Dr. on the report of a stabbing. Officers located the victim, 28 year old Thomas Perritt of Dundee, Oregon in the parking lot; he was bleeding from a single stab wound to the left arm. The officers learned that the victim had been stabbed by a male after he had nearly been hit by a car.

Sherwood police officers and a citizen began to give the victim first aid. Soon after, the victim was transported to a local hospital, where he was treated. Due to the significance of the victim's injuries, the Washington County Major Crimes Team was called out to assist the Sherwood Police Department with the investigation.

The juvenile suspect (identity will not be released) was identified. Officers were able to locate the suspect, who came to the Sherwood Police station to be interviewed.

No arrests have been made in this case, as the incident has been referred to the Washington County District Attorney for review.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who might have additional information is asked to call Sherwood Police via the non-emergency line for dispatch, at 503-629-0111.
