Two armed robbers are on the loose after holding up a store clerk in southeast Portland.

It happened at 9:30 p.m. Sunday at the Stop ‘N’ Go Market on the 2000 block of Southeast 122nd Avenue. Clerk M.D. Uddin was working behind the counter, helping a customer, when two men with hoods on barged in.

Surveillance video shows the suspects pointing guns at Uddin while ordering him to open the cash register. Police said one robber had a handgun, while the other was armed with a rifle. 

Uddin says he just tried to stay calm and follow their orders.

“I said, 'OK, go ahead.' Then I opened the cash register”, said Uddin.  “I was scared because that was the first time that ever happened to me.”

The suspects emptied out every section of the register, taking more than $800.

Uddin called police and officers searched the area, but found no trace of the suspects.

Uddin said someone came in right before the robbers, and he believes that person may have been in on it scoping out the place. 

Working in a convenience store, Uddin said getting robbed is always a concern. However, having guns pointed at him was not something he was prepared for. 

"I'm not going to work night shifts," he said. "Probably, that's all I can do." 

Police say the two black men were last seen walking south on Southeast 122nd Avenue. Anyone who recognizes them or has any information about this investigation is asked to contact robbery detectives at 503-823-0405.
