Two people are dead and one is injured following a stabbing on Max Train at Hollywood Station on Friday night. 

Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, of North Portland was arrested and charged with Aggravated Murder (two counts), Attempted Murder, Intimidation in the Second Degree (two counts), and Felon in Possession of a Restricted Weapon.

He will be arranged on Monday in Multnomah County Court. 

The names of the victims will be released following autopsies. 

The Incident 

This investigation started on Friday, May 26, at 4:30 p.m., when North Precinct and Transit Police Division officers responded to the report of a disturbance on an eastbound MAX train at the Hollywood Transit Station involving a man who stabbed two other people. Multiple officers responded to the area and, while en route, learned that the suspect got off the train and was leaving the area on foot towards Providence Medical Center. 

Officers and medical personnel arrived at the Hollywood Transit Station and located three stabbing victims. Officers began immediate medical treatment to the victims at the scene until medical personnel arrived. One victim, an adult man, died at the scene. The other two victims were transported by ambulance to a Portland hospital, where one was pronounced dead and the other was treated for injuries that are not expected to be life-threatening. 

The suspect was located by officers and taken into custody. The suspect received medical treatment and was turned over to Homicide detectives. 

Preliminary information indicates that the suspect was on the MAX train yelling various remarks that would best be characterized as hate speech toward a variety of ethnicities and religions. At least two of the victims attempted to intervene with the suspect and calm him down. The suspect attacked the men, stabbing three, before leaving the train. 

Witnesses described to police two young women, possibly Muslim, who were on the train at the time of the disturbance and attack, but left prior to police arrival. The young women have not been identified but one was described as wearing a hijab. 

Detectives would like to speak to them, and any other people who left the scene, as they may be witnesses to this incident.
