PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Police are searching for two armed robbery suspects in the Parkrose Neighborhood.

Police said at 6:21 p.m. officers responded to the report of a robbery at the Brooklyn Pharmacy, located at 3131 Southeast Milwaukie Avenue.

Officers arrived to the pharmacy and spoke to the victim who told them the suspect implied he had a gun as he robbed the victim of a phone, cash and prescription drugs.

Officers traced the victims phone to the area of Northeast 125th Avenue and Sandy Boulevard, where they said a possible suspect was seen running into the neighborhood.

A K9 unit and officers are searching the area.

Police concentrated effort at the Image Columbia Apartment complex on Sandy. FOX 12 cameras were there as police took away a red Mustang as evidence.

Resident May Konschuh said the car was left in her parking space. She said her two children were at home when they noticed police swarming around the car.

Konschuh said luckily she has cameras that captured an image of a man getting out of the car.

"On the video is shows - he was here sitting for about a minute, he got out. As soon as he walked that way the police all pulled in so they just missed him, but he got out and looked at all of our houses like where should he go?"

Konschuh told Fox 12 she has five children just feet away, along in their apartment.

"That's scary. What if they would have just grabbed a child and took it hostage or something? If they're going to do thatm you don't know where they're going to go with it."

Police have not confirmed whether the man in that surveillance photo is one of the suspects.

The suspects are described as two African American males, 16 to 22 years old, 6 feet to 6 foot 2 inches tall, and medium builds. One suspect was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, and the other in a white hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Anyone who sees the suspects are asked to call 911.
