PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Clackamas County man is being investigated for assault after stabbing a man several times after an altercation.

The Oregonian/Oregon Live reports (https://bit.ly/2cq7IDq ) that Henry Childress of Boring, Oregon told deputies he stabbed 35-year-old Andrew Weitz in self-defense. He claims Weitz attacked him before he stabbed the man at least four times, including twice in the stomach.

Weitz had been taken to the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center after the Saturday incident. A spokeswoman at the Portland hospital said Tuesday she couldn’t release any information on the man’s condition.

Court records show a witness reported that the two men had gotten into a fight but the documents don’t specify what caused the altercation.

The 58-year-old Childress has been jailed on suspicion of assault and unlawful use of a weapon.
