Crime Stoppers Of The Week

May 10, 2005 00:00


The Portland Police in cooperation with Crime Stoppers would like your help in locating and apprehending a man wanted for Robbery and Kidnapping. 50 year old Luke Duane Mitchell is wanted in Multnomah County for Robbery I, Kidnapping I, Burglary I, Assault III with bail set at $1.21 million.

On March 20, 2005, Mitchell, and three other suspects, committed a residential armed robbery in which they bound, gagged, and assaulted the victims. This incident occurred at a house in the 7900 block of Southwest 19th Avenue at about midnight. The other three suspects in this case have already been arrested.

Detectives believe this robbery was drug related. They have no specific information about where Mitchell might be, but think he is still in the Portland metro area. He should not be approached as he is dangerous and may be armed.

Mitchell is about 5’9” tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He has medium length brown hair, a brown and gray mustache and blue eyes.

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).
