Ore. stabbing suspect crashes patrol car, arrested for attempted murder
After deputies responded about 1 a.m. to the stabbing, they noticed a patrol car speeding away with no lights on.
A pursuit ended when the suspect lost control and crashed near Molalla, about 30 miles south of Portland. Deputies said they arrested the driver, 25-year-old Tara Axmaker of Clackamas, on attempted murder and other charges.
She was not injured in the crash, they said.
The stabbing victim was identified as 33-year-old Matthew Savage of Beaver Creek. He was hospitalized in fair condition.
The sheriff's office said amphetamine played what it calls a significant role in the stabbing attack.
