Harvey Ernest Mathnay, 49, was spotted by East Precinct officers on Sept. 20 near Northeast 82nd Avenue and Glisan Street. He was arrested without incident and booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a federal hold for bank robbery.

According to police, at 3:01 p.m. on Sept. 18, East Precinct officers responded to the Southeast Portland bank on the report of an armed robbery. They contacted bank employees, who said the suspect was armed with a handgun as he demanded money.

After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect left the bank and was last seen on the north side of the bank. Several officers searched the neighborhood but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description.
