Elmer's in Tigard robbed

A suspect got away after robbing the Elmer's Restaurant at 14055 S.W. Pacific Highway in Tigard on Saturday evening.

No one was injured during the incident.

The suspect is described as a white male wearing a black hoodie, black pants and a baseball cap.

According to the Tigard Police Department, at approximately 8 p.m. on Oct. 18, an employee of the restaurant reported a robbery. Within minutes, Tigard set up containment in the area and surrounding neighborhoods.

Investigators learned the suspect entered the restaurant and demanded money from an employee, who said the suspect displayed a handgun and carried a knife. The suspect fled the business with an undisclosed amount of money.

A Tigard K-9 was brought to the restaurant, but could not track the suspect.

Neighboring police agencies from King City and Tualatin, as well as the Washington County Sheriff's Office, assisted in the containment and search for the suspect, but no one was arrested. Tigard detectives are continuing the investigation.
