PORTLAND (AP) — A man has died after being struck and killed by a light rail train in Portland, police said.
Portland police said the unidentified victim had been arrested Saturday afternoon for criminal trespass, after he walked into a woman's home and refused to leave until the woman's husband and sons arrived.
The suspect was released and not booked into jail because of COVID pandemic restrictions.
He was seen later in the day walking into traffic along Interstate 84, swinging a rock and a pipe at passing vehicles, before reportedly running in front of a MAX light rail train and was struck and killed, police said.
The man's name was not immediately released pending notification of kin.
