Crime Stoppers for week of 09-12-05

September 12, 2005 00:00


Crime Stoppers, in conjunction with the Portland Police Bureau, needs your help in identifying the suspect in multiple armed robberies occurring in Southeast Portland.

On August 1, 2005, at about 2:00 p.m., the suspect walked into Pacific Tan, 4808 SE Woodstock Boulevard. He was armed with a knife and demanded money from the female employee at the counter. The suspect walked out the door, running westbound on Woodstock Boulevard.

Over the last several months, the suspect has targeted businesses, such as tanning salons, a quilting store, and coffee shops, where the employee is female and usually alone. The robberies occur during daylight hours and the suspect is armed with a knife.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5’10 to six feet tall, thin build, brown hair, clean cut, unshaven. He is in his late twenties to early thirties. He was wearing a blue baseball cap, and stud earrings in both ears. The suspect may be associated with a late 70’s to early 80’s faded blue, two-door vehicle with a hatchback, similar to a Chevy Sprint.

The suspect was caught on video during the robbery of Pacific Tan. Detectives are releasing this tape to the public in the hope that someone will recognize and identify the suspect.

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).
