U.S. Bank branch robbed in downtown Portland

Posted: Updated:

A bank robbery at a U.S. Bank branch in downtown Portland led police to detain a man who was on a TriMet bus Monday, but they later released him and are now looking for the robber.

Officers were called to the bank at 410 SW Harrison St. at 11:51 a.m.

While en route, they learned the robber escaped on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

A man matching the suspect's description was then found on a TriMet bus at Sixth Avenue and Burnside Street, and police detained him. Within a few hours, they released him, saying he was no longer considered a suspect.

No injuries were reported during the robbery and police are still investigating.

Anyone with information about this robbery should contact Detective Brett Hawkinson at (503) 823-1080.
