Investigators Need the Public's Help to Identify Robbery/Assault Suspects (Photo) - 11/29/19

On Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at 5 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a reported assault with a weapon call in the 15600 block of NW Athens Drive in Bethany. Detectives from the Violent Crimes Unit responded to the scene to lead the investigation.

An adult male victim reported that he met up with two males earlier in the afternoon and invited them back to his apartment. Once at the victim’s residence, the two suspects demanded money.

They assaulted the victim and beat him with a handgun. The victim suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening. The suspects then left the location with cash and other items stolen from the victim’s apartment.

The victim is not willing to speak to the media.

Detectives need the public’s help to identify these suspects, who may have ties to the Gresham area.

Anyone with information on the identities of these suspects is asked to contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2700.
