On Thursday May 17, 2012, at 8:41 p.m., a Portland Police officer assigned to North Precinct was flagged down by the victim of an armed robbery that occurred on the East end of the St. John's Bridge.

The victim told police that the suspects were riding bicycles and approached him on the street just North of the East end of the St Johns Bridge. One suspect pointed a silver handgun at him and a second suspect pointed a knife while they demanded he "empty his pockets." The victim tried to run away but was shoved to the ground by one of the suspects, who then fled westbound across the St. John's Bridge.

Additional officers arrived in the area and located the two suspects on the bridge. Officers ordered the men to the ground at gunpoint, where they were taken into custody. Officers later learned that the two suspects are brothers.

Officers recovered a loaded handgun and a knife from the suspects as well as a small amount of methamphetamine.

25-year-old Immanuel James Hazlewood was charged with Robbery in the First Degree, Robbery in the Second Degree and Possession of Methamphetamine.

20-year-old Jesse Sanden Hazlewood was charged with Robbery in the First Degree and Robbery in the Second Degree.

Both were booked into the Multnomah County Jail.
