Moments after Rick Best was fatally stabbed on a TriMet train while defending two women, someone stole Best's wedding ring and backpack.

"Suspect in theft of property from Ricky Best has been apprehended", the department tweeted.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspect, who can be seen walking off the train carrying a backpack.

Tschaggeny faces charges of second-degree theft, tampering with physical evidence and second-degree abuse of a corpse.

Rachael Mallory, the general manager of the Domino's Pizza at Northeast 36th and Sandy, alerted Portland police to a homeless camp where the 51-year-old alleged thief was living.

Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson says the ring and backpack belonged to Ricky Best, a 53-year-old man who was killed while heading home from his job as a city employee.

Jeremy Joseph Christian is accused of stabbing Best and Taliesin Namkai-Meche, 23, to death.

Micah David-Cole Fletcher, 21, won a poetry slam in 2013 with a piece about the prejudices faced by minorities, including Muslim Americans.

Portland police did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

The family of a Portland train attack is now faced with an added tragedy of searching for his personal items - including his wedding ring - that are believed to have been stolen.

A wallet from inside the backpack is still missing, Best's son, Eric, told KOIN 6 News. Once arrested, Christian made shocking statements when he was put in the back of a police auto equipped with audio and video recording devices, according to an affidavit released Tuesday.

The Portland train attack and the three heroes who risked their lives to protect two young women they didn't know has caught the nation's attention this past week. I understand that is no measure against their grief.

"People in the community saw this and felt the understandable rage that I think everybody felt", Simpson said.
