Man caught on video attacking people with handsaw inside Portland laundromat

PORTLAND, Oregon — A man was caught on camera attacking people with a handsaw inside a Portland laundromat, according to police.

Officers were first called on Northeast Weidler Street on July 17, about a suspect that had hit the car of the initial caller with a handsaw before continuing west on Weidler Street.

More 911 calls came in, including reports that the suspect assaulted people with the handsaw and a belt, broke the windshields of several cars and threatened additional people with the saw.

Surveillance video captured the assault at the laundromat.

Officers arrived in the area and found the suspect near the 2100 block of Northeast Weidler Street. 

Police ordered the suspect to stop and drop the handsaw, but officers said he refused and continued walking.

The suspect said he was going to make the officers shoot him, according to investigators.

The suspect then walked into the middle of traffic and continued to yell at the officers that they would need to hurt him to stop him.

Police said the suspect then advanced toward the officers with the handsaw.

The officers used less-lethal munition against the suspect, and he threw down the handsaw.

Shane Vordelmicha Green, 58, was arrested on charges including second-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon, attempted assault, strangulation, menacing, harassment, disorderly conduct, reckless endangering and disorderly conduct.
