|Cell Phone Footage from KATU|
When one of the owners of a food cart at 2nd and SW Stark called police about vandalism to one of their gas lines, street kids hit back, surrounding two of the cart owners and drew knives."We have problems, the street kids are down here every day, panhandling and when people don't give them change, they call them names, threaten them."
"Lefty," one of the cart owners told KATU,
No one was seriously hurt--except the feeling of safety in the City of Portland."It was like walking through a blender. All of them had knives. And they attacked us. It was like a bad movie."
