Employee was locking up business when man attacked her

Washington County Sheriff's Office deputies seek the public's help in searching for a man who allegedly beat a store clerk and stole property at a Dotty's early Tuesday morning.

Deputies were called around 2:30 a.m. to the Dotty's establishment at 20571 S.W. Tualatin Valley Highway in Aloha, concerning an assault and robbery. Multiple deputies responded to the area to render aid to the victim and search for the suspect.

Deputies learned there was one man who reportedly attacked the 32-year-old female clerk as she closed the establishment for the night.

Deputies were told the clerk went outside and was locking the front door behind her to close for the night when a man ran up and began striking her in the head with a solid object. The clerk said when she fell to the sidewalk, the man ran inside and stole an unspecified amount of lottery tickets and a small amount of cash.

The clerk was transported by ambulance to a local hospital with significant head injuries. Deputies searched the area with a K-9 and handler with no success.

The man was described as having dark skin, in his 30s with a medium build. He was reportedly wearing a light colored shirt with a Nike logo on the front wearing black colored warm-up pants with a white stripe down the leg. He wore a dark ball cap and had a surgical mask covering his face.

The Washington County Forensic Science Unit assisted with crime scene processing. Washington County Violent Crime Unit detectives were contacted and are continuing the investigation.
