Man arrested in Tigard deli robbery
Tigard police said Thursday they arrested a suspect in the robbery of Foxy's deli earlier this week.
Keith Brian Martin was identified by investigators as a suspect and agreed to come into the Tigard Police Department for an interview Wednesday evening, police said. He was reportedly arrested without incident at the police station.
Foxy's was robbed early Tuesday morning by a man carrying a rifle. Police said Thursday that the robber pointed the gun at an employee and demanded cash. After taking the money, he ran off, prompting police to ask for the public's help in identifying suspects.
Martin, 38, faces charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree theft, menacing and unauthorized use of a weapon. As a convicted felon, he faces an additional charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Martin pleaded guilty to first-degree forgery and identity theft in Deschutes County in 2014, according to court records. Both crimes are considered felonies under Oregon law.
After he was taken into custody, Martin was booked into Washington County Jail and arraigned Thursday. Bail was set at $25,000.
There were no injuries in Tuesday's robbery of Foxy's. The robber was captured on surveillance footage but was wearing black face paint that obscured his identity.
Foxy's is located at 14295 S.W. Pacific Hwy., Tigard.
