Armed ATM robbery reported in Brooklyn

by: DAVID F. ASHTON - After withdrawing money from this Brooklyn neighborhood ATM, a customer was robbed at gunpoint by an older, very thin tall masked man.An armed robbery was reported at 1:40 pm on Sunday morning, June 15, in which a pedestrian was robbed at gunpoint after using the U.S. Bank Automatic Teller Machine on S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, just north of Franklin Street, in the Brooklyn neighborhood.

During this bold daytime stick-up, the victim told police that the suspect approached her from behind, after she used the banking machine, and demanded her money.

“The victim said she threw some money at the suspect, who then chased her on foot for a few feet before running away,” reported Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson.

Several officers, including a Police K-9 Unit, searched the neighborhood, but did not locate anyone matching the bandit’s description. “The suspect was described as a white male in his 40s, 6'2" tall, very thin build, blond hair, wearing some kind of black mask, with a black jacket, black jeans, and a black hat,” Simpson said. “The suspect was armed with a handgun.” Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Robbery Detail detectives at 503/823-0405.
