Crime Stoppers Of The Week

April 06, 2005 00:00

  

The Portland Police in cooperation with Crime Stoppers would like your help identifying the suspect in a robbery that occurred in North Portland.

On March 30, 2005 a little after 5:00 a.m. a man was shot and robbed while walking across a pedestrian overpass across Interstate 5 near North Bryant Street.

The victim was crossing the overpass and saw three people standing on it ahead of him. As he approached them one of them confronted him and demanded money. The suspect raised a gun toward the victim and shot him in the face. The suspect and the two people with him ran off. The victim called police. He was later transported to the hospital to be treated for his wound.

Police searched the area immediately after the incident but did not find the suspects.

The suspect who confronted the victim and shot him is described as a black male between the ages of 17-24. He is about 5’11” with a thin build.

Detectives would like to hear from anybody with information about this case.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you may remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
