PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A woman has been arrested after police say she forced her way into the Portland apartment of someone with whom she was in a relationship, stabbed the person, and then barricaded herself inside, police said.

KOIN reports authorities received a call about a stabbing at an apartment in the Southwestern area of the city around 7:45 a.m.

When police arrived they found one victim with a stab wound, who was taken to the hospital, and learned the woman was still armed with a knife and inside the apartment.


Police closed down multiple streets and negotiated with her until she came out about two hours later and was taken into custody.

Shadea Stewart, 32, of Portland, has been booked in the Multnomah County Detention Center, the Portland Police Bureau said later Wednesday. She is charged with assault, burglary, coercion, and strangulation. It wasn’t immediately known if she has a lawyer to comment on her case.
