An out-of-town tourist visiting Portland's Old Town-Chinatown neighborhood was stabbed Monday in an apparent random and unprovoked attack.

The 44-year-old suspect, arrested at the scene, was identified as Tammy Marie Imholt. She has been charged with felony assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

According to local outlet KGW8, Imholt lived in a tent on the street where the assault occurred and was seen screaming right before the incident.

The victim said that she crossed the street to avoid Imholt, but got chased down by her. She said she wound up being grabbed by the hair and slammed into the ground by Imholt. At that point, Imholt repeatedly kicked and punched the victim before stabbing her with what was later identified as a cuticle trimmer.

According to authorities, a witness pulled Imhoff off of the victim and held her there until police came to the scene. The victim's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. She continues to receive treatment in hospital.

Imholt was charged twice before in Portland this year for harassment, criminal mistreatment, and disorderly conduct. However, the charges were dropped.
