PORTLAND, Ore. Dec 15 2016 A 23-year-old woman was arrested in the deadly stabbing of another woman at a Portland strip club.
Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson said Rinita Linelle Lowe was booked Thursday into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of murder and unlawful use of a weapon. She’ll be arraigned Friday.
Officers responded to Skinn Gentlemen’s Club on a report of disturbance and found a critically injured woman. Paramedics could not save the 29-year-old victim who died at the scene.
Simpson said club security chased Lowe to a neighboring 7-Eleven where police officers were inside the store getting coffee. Security officers noticed the officers of the stabbing and they promptly took her into custody.
