PORTLAND — Daughters of a Portland stabbing victim say their father was attacked after telling a homeless man not to camp in the neighborhood.
Shawna Lebechuck and Kayla McNeel say their father, Kasey Lebechuck, was stabbed 17 times Sunday night. McNeel says her father was stabbed in the lungs, stomach, back, mouth, eye and back of head.
Police arrested Todd Schneider on a charge of first-degree assault, but have yet to say what led to the attack or confirm that Schneider is homeless.
