Deputies Arrest Strong-Arm Robbery Suspect in Aloha (Photo) - 07/30/20

On Wednesday, July 29, 2020, at 10:49 p.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a strong-arm robbery in the area of SW Wakem Street and SW 178th Avenue in the community of Aloha. A man reported that he was attacked by another man over some soda cans he was collecting to recycle. The victim reported that he had been punched repeatedly and was knocked to the ground. The suspect took the cans from the victim’s car and then drove off in another car. He was described as a man in his 40s with a stocky build and a green t-shirt.

Several deputies responded to the area and quickly located the suspect’s vehicle. A K-9 unit from the Beaverton Police Department led deputies directly to the stolen bags of cans. A short time later, the suspect was located nearby.

The suspect was identified as Robert Rollo Stowaser, 38, of the Beaverton area. Mr. Stowaser briefly hid in a gas station bathroom, where he cut off the sleeves to his t-shirt in an effort to disguise himself from deputies. He was transported to the Washington County Jail and booked on charges of robbery in the third degree and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.
