Oregon State Police closed a rest area along I-5 southbound near Wilsonville after a man was robbed at gunpoint while sitting in his car Wednesday.

OSP said a man was robbed while sitting in his car in the back lot of the French Prairie Rest Area around 7:30 a.m.

The man told police that a man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, baseball cap and sunglasses came up to his car and pointed a gun to his head.

The suspect then took off on foot into a wooded area. Officers and a K-9 team searched the area, but no suspect was located. 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact investigators at 503-378-3387. 

In October 2015, OSP responded to the French Prairie Rest Area after a 55-year-old Beavercreek man was found dead.
