EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a man accused of stabbing another man Saturday morning in downtown Eugene.

The 44-year-old victim suffered multiple wounds, and was taken to the hospital with injuries Eugene police describe as not life-threatening.

Police say the suspect fled on a bicycle, but was caught by officers at a park. He was identified late Saturday afternoon as 51-year-old Brian Ernest. He was booked into the Lane County Jail on charges of assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

The stabbing occurred at the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza. A number of witnesses were in the vicinity, attending Eugene Saturday Market.

Police have not said if the suspect and the victim know each other.
