This case has been on my mind a lot because I used to live around that neighborhood...it's very disturbing and as they arrested the suspects today, took another turn for the weird: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2013/03/3_men_accused_of_unusually_vio.html There seem to be few clues in any of the coverage as to what this could be about. The girlfriend apparently wasn't home, but he was there anyways. And three guys brutally attacking one victim? The initial reports said nothing about robbery or such as a motive. This seems like it was personal, somehow.
