TriMet is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the identity and arrest of a suspect involved in a robbery on Monday afternoon.
On Monday March 26, 2018, at 2:37 p.m., Transit Police Division officers responded to the Parkrose Transit Station on the report that a woman was attacked and forced to give the suspect her money.
The attack lasted several minutes as the woman tried to defend herself and get away from the suspect. The suspect followed the victim and hit her several times with his fists and feet knocking her to the ground.
The suspect demanded money from the victim and her identification. The victim ultimately gave the suspect fifteen dollars (all in $1 coins). During the attack, the suspect continued to threaten the victim with violence. The victim did not suffer any serious injuries.
The suspect is described as a middle aged white male, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, about 180 pounds, with scruffy brown hair and a white mustache. The suspect was wearing a fairly distinctive black and orange colored jacket with the San Francisco Giants baseball team monogram printed on it.
The suspect had been riding the MAX Red Line prior to the attack. The suspect may be homeless and frequenting East or North Portland.
Anyone with information on the identity of this suspect is asked to contact the Transit Police Division at 503-962-7566, or by providing information at https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/canyouidme/read.cfm?id=138982
