Second suspect arrested in connection with Dec. armed robbery

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Portland Police Bureau's Gun Task Force and Gang Enforcement Team arrested 22-year-old Hoseah Jeremiah Chambers in connection with an armed robbery in southeast Portland late last year.

The arrest was made in the area of Northeast 9th Avenue and Alberta Street with the assistance of the Special Emergency Reaction Team.

Investigators say Chambers, along with 21-year-old Marcel Mitchell Bryant, robbed a woman at gunpoint near Southeast Grand avenue and Oak Street on Dec. 19.

Bryant was arrested the next day, and police say a gun was recovered.

Chambers was arrested Thursday afternoon after investigators identified him as a second suspect.

Both men have been indicted on several charges, including robbery, coercion and unlawful use of a weapon.

Bryant faces additional burglary charges from an unrelated incident.
