Two Good Samaritans were fatally stabbed Friday on a train in Portland, Ore., by a man yelling racial slurs at two women who appeared to be Muslim.
The victims had come to the defense of the women, one of whom was wearing a hijab, according to the Oregonian newspaper.
Another man also tried to help the women. He too was stabbed, but is expected to survive.
Police busted the suspect after he fled from a station. Police Sgt. Pete Simpson said the man “was using hate speech.’’
