The 2017 Portland train stabbings occurred on May 26, 2017 when a man fatally stabbed two people and injured a third, after he was confronted for shouting anti-Muslim racial slurs at two teenage girls on a MAX Light Rail train in Portland, Oregon. A suspect identified by police as Jeremy Joseph Christian was charged with murder, attempted murder, and other crimes. The attack was widely condemned by the Portland community, politicians, and civil rights groups, some of which said the attack represented a recent increase of racism and Islamophobia in the United States.
