News Release
Vancouver Police pursuit ends in Clackamas (update: detention center info added) - 01/21/23

Vancouver, Wash. – On January 21, 2023, at approximately 3:00 p.m., Vancouver Police responded to a robbery/carjacking at the Vancouver Mall (8900 NE Vancouver Mall Dr.). The victim had just parked her car and was walking toward the mall, when two males approached, demanded her keys and one of the suspects displayed a knife and threatened the victim. Out of fear for her safety, she handed over her keys and the two males got into her car and drove off. The victim was not injured. 

Shortly after the robbery, Vancouver Police Department units spotted the victim’s vehicle in the area and attempted a traffic stop. The suspects continued to drive off and Vancouver Police continued to pursue the suspects. The pursuit ended in Clackamas County, Oregon. Both suspects, a 13-year-old male and a 14-year-old male, were taken into custody and lodged at the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office. 

An emergency warrant has been entered for extradition into Washington for the charges of Robbery/ Carjacking, Felony Harassment, Elude, and Possession of Stolen Motor Vehicle.

Nothing further is releasable at this time.
