Suspect in theft of property from Ricky Best has been apprehended. Portland police spokesman Sgt. Pete Best told The Oregonian that Tschaggeny took advantage of chaos in the aftermath of the stabbing and snatched Best's backpack and the wedding ring off his finger.
Authorities booked Tschaggeny into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of second-degree theft, tampering with physical evidence and second-degree abuse of a corpse.
George Tschaggeny, 51, was arrested at a homeless encampment under an overpass after a tip from an employee of a Domino's Pizza restaurant in the area, Portland Police Bureau officials said at a Friday press conference.
Ricky Best was one of the two heroes who were killed after they tried to protect two teenaged female passengers from being verbally assaulted by a man on the light rail train. A third man was injured and subsequently released from the hospital. "It's completely heartless. There's no other way to describe what happened", Simpson said.
After being apprehended by police, Christian reportedly made a series of vile statements regarding the attack.
