Two male suspects sought in home invasion robbery

Detectives with the Washington County Sheriff's Office are seeking two male suspects from an armed, home-invasion robbery and assault in the 19800 block of Southwest Farmington Road in Aloha on Saturday that left one resident injured.

Upon arrival, deputies learned the suspects entered the home and ransacked the house while the homeowners were asleep.

One of the residents awoke and confronted the suspects. A fight ensued and the homeowner sustained minor injuries. Shortly after the fight began, both suspects brandished knives, demanded money and threatened to kill the homeowner if he did not cooperate, said Sgt. Vince Stimler, a spokesman with the sheriff's office.

The suspects tied up the homeowner and his roommate, and the suspects left the house with property and money. Deputies conducted a thorough search of the area, but did not locate the suspects.

The suspects are described as male, both wearing black or dark clothing. Each had a mask on his face. One suspect is described at 5-feet, 8-inches tall with a stocky build, and suspect two is 6-feet tall with a more slender build. The race of the suspects is unknown.

Washington County Detectives believe this is not a random robbery and the suspects specifically targeted the victims. The investigation is ongoing, and there are no further details at this time.

Detectives would like anyone with any knowledge of the incident to contact the Sheriff's office at 503-629-0111.
