by: MULTNOMAH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE - 'Jabba the Robber'Police are asking the public to help identify a robbery suspect they have dubbed "Jabba the Robber" because of his size and clothing.

He is described as a white man in his 30s, 6-foot-2 with a stocky build, dark eyes, pale skin, wearing all dark clothes.

According to police, at 10:50 a.m. on Monday, March 24, East Precinct officers responded to the report of an armed bank robbery at the Wells Fargo Bank branch, 4515 S.E. Woodstock Blvd.

Officers talked with bank employees, who said the suspect entered the bank armed with a handgun and demanded money. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect walked from the bank and disappeared into the neighborhood.

Several officers searched the neighborhood but did not find the suspect.
