Thieves strike Portland bar

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Workers at a Portland bar are on edge after they say three thieves pulled off a plan to swipe some cash.

It happened at Mama Son's Lounge Southeast Division as the bartender was starting to close up at about 1:45 a.m.

The manager said one man distracted the bartender near a door as another man went behind the counter. There, he opened a drawer and swiped nearly $900 in cash. The suspects then left in a minivan.

This is the second time in a month Mama Son's has been targeted. Police arrested Paul Grice for robbery in January after they said he attacked a bartender and stole hundreds of dollars in cash.
