The Hood River Police Department is currently investigating an attempted murder that occurred around 2 p.m. on Aug. 21 at E. Port Marina Drive. A confrontation between the assailant, who told police his name was Jake Meszaros, and the victim, who has asked to remain anonymous, led to the assailant stabbing the victim with a knife, according to HRPD Sergeant Don Cheli. Police believe that Meszaros may have given a fake name upon his arrest, said Cheli, and HRPD is working to establish his identity.

Meszaros is currently being lodged at the Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility (NORCOR) on a $3 million bail.
