15-year-old armed robbery suspect arrested
Police arrested a 15-year-old male armed robbery suspect in Northeast Portland overnight.
The Portland Police Bureau's Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and the Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) was called out to search for a second suspect in the Cully neighborhood. He is described as an African American male in his late teens or early 20s.
According to police, at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 14, North Precinct officers responded to the report of an armed robbery at USA Gas, located at 4445 Northeast Cully Boulevard.
Officers arriving at the scene of the robbery were able to quickly arrest one of the suspects, a 15-year-old male. The second suspect ran into the neighborhood and was not immediately located.
Due to the concern that this suspect may have been armed, SERT was activated and, along with several members of the K-9 Unit, conducted an extensive neighborhood search for the suspect.
After nearly five hours of searching, the suspect was not located and investigators believe he likely escaped the perimeter early in the investigation.
Robbery detectives are continuing the investigation.Add a comment
