Deputies search for Subway robbery suspect

Man ordered sandwich, displayed weapon and demanded cash from Raleigh Hills clerk


Washington County sheriff's deputies are asking for the public's help in locating a man who reportedly robbed a Subway Restaurant in Raleigh Hills.

The suspect was described as a light-skinned African American man between ages 16 and 20 with a very thin build. He had longer brown and blonde streaked hair, brown eyes and was clean shaven. He wore a purple hooded sweatshirt with a white zipper and white drawstring along with dark blue denim pants and black framed glasses.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 503-846-2500.

On Friday at about 1:40 a.m., deputies responded to a robbery report at the Subway Restaurant at 10725 S.W. Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway. Upon arrival, deputies learned a man robbed the 21-year-old female clerk. Multiple deputies responded to the area to search for the suspect.

Deputies learned the suspect entered the restaurant, ordered a sandwich and went through the process of having the employee make it. The employee told deputies that when she rang the order up, the man displayed an unspecified weapon and demanded the cash in the register, said Sgt. Bob Ray, sheriff's office spokesman.

The employee gave the man a small amount of cash, and he fled on foot. The employee was not injured.

A K-9 team searched the area but was unable to locate the suspect.

Washington County's Violent Crime Unit detectives were contacted and are continuing the investigation. The Washington County Forensic Science Unit assisted with processing the crime scene.
