A 43-year old man visiting the area from North Dakota was stabbed Friday morning after giving a very intoxicated person a ride home. Authorities say that Jordan Lee Estes, 23 of Seal Rock, had met the man and his two female friends at a bar in Lincoln Beach, north of Depoe Bay. Reports say that Estes became extremely intoxicated.

His female companions said the attack was unprovoked.
The victim was taken by private vehicle to North Lincoln Hospital for treatment of his wounds. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies located Estes at the Lincoln Beach Apartments later in the morning and arrested him on charges of Assault. Estes’ bail was set at $250,000.
