A Wilsonville police officer tried to stop 41-year-old Mukunda Moss at around 1:18 p.m. as he drove 46 mph in a 25-mph residential zone, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. The vehicle slowed but did not stop, officials said, even after police turned on their lights and siren.

Moss shouted at the teen, who was later identified as his daughter, to go inside the house. Moss and his daughter went inside, police said; the adult woman left the scene.

Police said they tried to convince Moss to leave the residence, but he did not comply, and at one point Moss appeared in a second story window with a handgun. Officers called for more units to assist in securing the area and evacuating the occupants of nearby homes.

They convinced Moss’s daughter to leave the home, which she did safely, and negotiators from Clackamas County SWAT and the county’s Hostage Negotiation Team were able to convince Moss to surrender after SWAT teams surrounded the residence.

He was taken into custody at 3:45 p.m.

Moss was taken to a hospital for evaluation and was expected to be charged with attempting to elude. Additional charges were also possible, police said.

  • ‘SPIDER-MAN’ ROBS LAKESHORE INN: An armed man wearing a Spider-Man mask robbed the Lakeshore Inn on State Street in Lake Oswego on Tuesday morning.

    LOPD spokesman Sgt. Tom Hamann told The Review that police received a call at 8:01 a.m. after the suspect committed the robbery using a semi-automatic handgun and fled with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured in the robbery, and the suspect was last seen heading north on foot.

    Police responded to the call but were unable to locate the masked suspect, Hamann said.

    The suspect is described as an adult male age 25-30, approximately 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 190 pounds, wearing black gloves, a black hoodie and a Spider-Man mask with the eyeholes cut out.

    A Lakeshore Inn staff member declined to comment Tuesday, saying employees were not permitted to talk about the case.

    The robbery came less than two hours after a reported robbery at a Muchas Gracias restaurant in Beaverton in which the suspect was also described as wearing a Spider-Man mask. Beaverton Police Officer Mike Rowe said the detective assigned to the case has surveillance video available, but it is not yet being released in the early phase of the investigation.

    “The information I was given about the robbery in Beaverton suggests that the suspect could in fact be the same person, but we’re not sure of that until we get more evidence,” Hamann said.
