Tigard Police are looking for a man who assaulted a Beaverton man near 121st and Scholls Ferry Road on Monday afternoon.
Police were called to the area at about 3:35 p.m. on reports of a robbery.
According to police, the victim was leaving a nearby pharmacy when he was approached by three men, who motioned him over to where they were standing.
The men greeted the man, then punched him on the side of the head. When the man fell to the ground, the suspects stole a shopping bag full of items and fled.
Two of the men left on foot. Another drove off, said Tigard Police spokesman Jim Wolf.
The Beaverton resident sustained minor injuries in the assault. He called 911 and provided officials with a description of the men and the getaway car.
A short time later, a nearby Tigard police officer spotted the car with three occupants inside it traveling along Southwest North Dakota Street near 110th Place.
Joao Enrique Cardoso, 20, of Tualatin, was arrested and charged with third-degree robbery. He was lodged in the Washington County Jail.
The other occupants of the car were questioned by police, and then released.
The investigation into this case continues. Police are looking for a man with facial tattoos, who is accused of leading the assault, Wolf said.
