The CLDC strongly disputed that, however. “Civil Liberties Defense Center has no connection to this person,” Marianne Dugan, senior staff attorney for the group, said in a Monday email to The Western Journal seeking a retraction. “The information from Mr. Ngo is false and defamatory. “The photo of the person in front of CLDC is not the arrested person (note the strategically cut off photo, not showing a face). The article with a photo of Mr. Luchini makes no connection between him and CLDC, and that article is from a high school newspaper. CLDC has no record of Mr. Luchini in our files, and there is no photo or information about him on our website.” A victim who was identified only by her first name of Tu-Nhi told KGW that she was attacked on the night of Jan. 30 after a yoga class. “He tapped me on the shoulder from behind. I think the knife was inside his sleeve, so he just kind of cut me down the shoulder,” she said. She said she needed stitches to close the four- to five-inch gash she suffered. “I’m pretty traumatized,” she said. Multnomah County lists Luchini as a member of its youth commission. “I believe we can make a positive difference in our community,” he said. “My goal is to be on the sustainability committee to work on Transit Justice and Environmental Justice Issues.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
