A 26-year-old man was arrested Sunday after an altercation at a homeless camp in Vancouver escalated into a stabbing, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

Police were called to the camp in the streets west of Share House, 1115 W. 13th St., at 2:23 a.m. and found Brian Moore, 40, suffering from multiple stab wounds to his upper body, according to Vancouver police Officer Ilia Botvinnik. He said multiple officers provided chest seals and a tourniquet for Moore before he could be treated by emergency medical personnel.

Moore was undergoing surgery later Sunday and is expected to survive his wounds, Botvinnik said.

Police arrested the alleged assailant, Stinlee Dornelus, at the scene without incident, Botvinnik said. He was booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of attempted second-degree murder.
