PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police have ended their neighborhood search for two men suspected in an armed carjacking in northeast Portland on Monday morning.

Officers from the Portland Police Bureau responded to the 400 block of Northeast Tillamook Street at 5:53 a.m.

When they arrived on scene they found a victim who told them he had been in his car sleeping near the Irvington School at 1320 Northeast Brazee Street around 4:30 a.m. when the suspects knocked on his window with a handgun.

The victim told officers the two men then took off with his vehicle, a dark brown 2003 Lincoln Navigator. He said he could not call officers from the scene of the carjacking since his phone was in the SUV when it was stolen, so he walked to his home on Tillamook Street to call police.

An officer spotted the vehicle at the Chevron Gas Station at 3435 Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The officer attempted to follow the suspects, but they sped away.

The two suspects then dove out of the stolen vehicle near the intersection of North Beech Street and North Mallory Avenue while the SUV was still moving.

Police called in the Special Emergency Reaction Team and Crisis Negotiation Team to respond to the area to assist with the search.

SERT and CNT officers concluded their neighborhood search before 11 a.m. without locating the suspects. Robbery detectives are continuing to investigate the case and anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 503-823-3333.
