Caught on camera: Man steals purse from SE Portland salon

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Surveillance cameras caught a thief on camera stealing from a southeast Portland salon.

It happened Monday between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Dosha Salon Spa, 3490 S.E. Hawthorne.

The owners said a man walked in the back door of the business and initially went into break room, before heading down a hallway where employees keep personal items.

He got away with an employee's purse and then promptly used several credit cards that were inside it.

"It's really disturbing. We're really hard working people and artistic people who are really doing our craft and trying to make a living," said Alma Perez, spa manager. "And that's not something you want to deal with at the end of your hardworking eight-hour shift."

The suspect was wearing a bike helmet and a messenger bag, while drinking from a cup. Spa workers said they do not recognize him.

If you know anything about the suspect in this case, call Portland police.
