Old Town voices concerns: ‘Portland unsafe, collapsing’
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — It’s no secret there have been issues in Old Town over the last few weeks and months — garbage, vandalism, tents lining several blocks and a recent spate of violent crimes.
That issue came up during the Old Town Community Association meeting Wednesday afternoon.
At the end of June a woman staying in an Old Town hotel was attacked. A 44-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly chasing the the victim as she walked down the street, grabbed her by the hair, threw her down, kicked her and stabbed her with a nail file.
