The Portland Police Bureau tweeted news of the arrest Friday, but did not immediately release the man's name. Video of the alleged thief shows a man leaving the train platform with a backpack in each hand. Portland police told the newspaper that Best's backpack was stolen as he lay bleeding from his wounds, and that his wedding ring is also missing.

Police put the word out Thursday night, and by Friday morning the man had been arrested.

Best, 53, was on his way home when 35-year-old Jeremy Joseph Christian began shouting anti-Muslim slurs at two teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a head scarf.

Sgt. Pete Simpson, Portland police official spokesperson, said that the theft of the Portland stabbing victim's personal belongings was "really an unconscionable act" and that it was an "awful scenario for [his] family".
