###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

On Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at 11:38 a.m., a male was in his vehicle at the Burgerville drive-through at Southeast 12th Avenue and Southeast Hawthorne Street when another male approached him and threatened him. The suspect demanded the victim's vehicle upon threat of injury with a bottle. The suspect drove off in the victim's vehicle, a green Ford Ranger. The victim was not injured.

At about 12:02 p.m., a call came into dispatch about a truck that was blocking the driveway near the 600 block of Southeast Cesar Chavez Boulevard. The truck was the same one taken in the earlier robbery. While officers checked the area, they were flagged down by a witness who reported a pedestrian had just been robbed of their cell phone by a male suspect, whose description matched the previous robber's description. The victim of the robbery of the cell phone has not reported this to the police at this time.

Officers located the suspect in the 4400 block of Northeast Glisan Street and arrested him. The suspect's identity is still unknown and he is being booked under "John Doe" at the Multnomah County Detention Center on charges of Robbery I and Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle.

Robbery Detective Hiedi Housley is the primary investigator. If anyone has information about either of these cases, she can be contacted at (503) 823-1063 or at hiedi.housley@portlandoregon.gov . Detective Housley is interested in hearing from the victim of the second incident.
