Investigators are trying to determine if two armed robberies in NE Portland are related. Both crimes happened within about a half-hour of each other early Tuesday morning.
The first occurred on NE 43rd and Fremont. A man pulled a gun on the victim while an accomplice robbed him. The other occurred about a mile away on NE 50th and Sandy. Three men robbed another victim at gunpoint.
Police searched the area around the second robbery and found a pellet gun that may have been used in one of the muggings.
Call Portland Police if you know anything about either of the crimes.
