News Release
Robbery Investigation Underway - 09/08/21

On Tuesday 9/7/21 at 8:18 p.m. officers responded to a robbery near SW Johnston Street & SW Grant Avenue.

A man and woman reported they were walking home from dinner along the Fanno Creek Trail. When they reached SW Grant Avenue, two men got out of a truck and started walking toward them, demanding the couple drop everything. The woman reported one of the suspects ripped her purse off her, and also took her cell phone and keys. The men got back into the truck and drove off, and the victims were not hurt.

The truck is described as a navy blue Ford F-150 or F-250, model year 2010-2012, with tinted windows and possibly a canopy. The suspects are described as:

  • A Hispanic man, 40-45 years old, on the shorter side (4’11” – 5’ tall), with a stocky build, thick black hair and thicker lips. He was wearing a red t-shirt, jeans and sneakers.
  • A second man of unknown race, who was also short and stocky.

While this was an isolated incident, it’s a good reminder for people to stay vigilant about their safety and surroundings. When possible, travel in pairs or groups, stick to well-lit areas and immediately report any suspicious activity to police.

Detectives are asking anyone who may have helpful information related to this case to please contact the Tigard Police Tip Line at 503-718-COPS or tips@tigard-or.gov. You can remain anonymous.
