According to the Portland Police Bureau, on Saturday morning officers found a naked man who appeared to be experiencing a behavioral health crisis, was cutting himself with a knife and threatening to jump off the ledge.
After the man informed officers he was hungry, they obtained a sandwich from a nearby hotel and used it to move the man away from the ledge.
Officers were then able to take the man into custody. He is currently being evaluated medically at an area hospital.
Investigators say criminal charges related to vandalism to vehicles in the parking structure may be forthcoming.
