78-year-old man had his ear bitten off in an attack at a train station in Oregon

WARNING: The details of this story may disturb some readers.

GRESHAM, Oregon (COIN) – A horrific brawl at the last light rail stop in Oregon left a 78-year-old man seriously injured, with his ear bitten off and his skull exposed.

The fight happened just before 2:30 a.m. Tuesday and ended with the arrest of a 25-year-old man who had recently moved to Portland from Georgia, authorities said.

Gresham police and Multnomah County deputies were called to the MAX platform on Cleveland Avenue after witnesses reported a possible stab wound that caused heavy bleeding. When law enforcement arrived, the suspect, later identified by fingerprints as Corin Kremer, was still on top of the man and continued to attack, officials said.

Detectives determined that the man had not been stabbed, but that his ear “and part of his face” had been chewed off. Rescuers were able to see the skull of the victim.

Kremer, who originally introduced himself as “El Baker”, was charged with assault.

Later that day, Portland police said a man who had been fighting on a train with another man near the Lloyd area fled the scene before they could arrive.

The blue line riders were worried hours after the attack.

“I feel like they could improve their safety a bit to keep things like this from happening,” said KOIN Nexstar rider Jayden Adach. “They must patrol at least once an hour. This is very rare to see.”

“There are a few more of these TPS guards patrolling around telling people to behave themselves,” said rider Richard Landers. “That’s all they have to do is behave.”

After the child was pushed off the platform, local officials were asked what exactly they were doing to make the platforms safer.

“It is regrettable to learn that another person was injured at the Cleveland Ave MAX station this morning,” a spokesman for TriMet, the state’s public transportation authority, said in a statement. “What happens in the community sometimes happens on or near the transportation system.”
