Knife-wielding man chases down guy in broad daylight; Portland is an asylum without locks

A disturbing video shared on social media depicts a knife-wielding man chasing another man in downtown Portland, Ore., in broad daylight.

The potential victim may have avoided a stabbing because the alleged attacker had to slow down to keep his pants up.

The man being chased appeared to be talking on a cell phone on a corner near another potential altercation when he was confronted and chased by the man brandishing the large knife who also sounded like he was repeatedly spewing a racial slur.

The potential victim was fortunately able to get into a car and drive away, but not before the attacker appeared to be trying to smash the passenger-side window with the weapon. It’s unclear at this point what precipitated the incident.

According to tireless journalist Andy Ngo, who shared the now-viral video on several platforms, the incident took place near Portland’s Justice Center and main police station. Cops, however, reportedly didn’t respond to the scene.

Watch:

For more than a year, far-left anarchy and rising crime have destroyed sections of the once-beautiful city of Portland, where homelessness is also now on the rise (a tent is visible in the above video).

Shortly after the city’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler recently vowed to take back the city, for example, a peaceful protest reportedly turned into an outright riot on May Day, the first day of this month.

A recent poll commissioned by The Oregonian news outlet revealed that since the COVID-19 outbreak, locals are less likely to venture downtown out of concerns that the area is unsafe and dirty, with the homelessness issue exacerbating the situation.

Tourism, accordingly, has likely been adversely affected. The overall business climate for companies located downtown is also an issue.

The footage posted by Andy Ngo prompted a huge response on Twitter. Here is a sampling:
