Oregon City police release sketch of robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:

Oregon City police are trying to track down a man who robbed an O'Reilly's Auto Parts store.

They released a sketch of the suspect on Tuesday.

It happened at the location on Molalla Avenue on Nov. 18.

The suspect walked into the store with his hand in his jacket, indicating he had a gun, police said.

When the suspect ordered two workers to get money from the till, he pressed something hard into the back of one of the victims, who thought it felt like a gun, officers told FOX 12.

After getting some cash, the robber then told the victims to stay in a corner as he left.

The suspect is described as a black man, between 25 to 35 years old, 6'5" tall with a medium build.

He was wearing a black or dark blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled tightly over his head at the time of the robbery.

He also had a white bandana over his face that extended about halfway up his nose.

Police said he was thought to be wearing blue jeans.

One of the victims described seeing freckles or moles on the suspect's cheeks, like Morgan Freeman.

He was also described as having a "rough complexion."

Police say surveillance video from neighboring businesses showed a dark-colored, two-door, possibly late 80s car leaving the area around the time of the robbery.

A customer who left just prior to the crime described seeing a white 2000s two-door Mercedes sedan with chrome rims, police said.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call the Oregon City Police Department's tip line at 503-496-1616.
