Crime Stoppers Week of 07-09-07

July 09, 2007 00:00


The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, is asking for your help identifying a robbery suspect caught on tape.

On June 5, 2007, at 11:36 p.m., a lone female robbed the Holgate Gas and Grocery located at 4525 Southeast 28th Avenue. The suspect entered the store, made small talk with the clerk and then left. She returned a short time later, and as she talked on her cell phone, she walked to the counter, raised her shirt and exposed a gun tucked in her waistband. The suspect fled the store on foot, northbound across Holgate on Southeast 27th Avenue. She may be associated with a black SUV that was seen in the area prior to the robbery.

The suspect is described as a black female, approximately 20 years old, 5’5” tall with a stocky build. In the surveillance video, the suspect is wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a distinctive logo that could possibly be a backwards “F,” which may associated with the skater clothing brand FAMOUS. The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

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 remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
