WELCHES, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies are asking for the public's help identifying a man who robbed the Mountain Air Motel in Welches last week.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said a deputy responded to the report of a robbery at the motel, located at 65500 East Highway 26, at 3:28 a.m. March 27.

The manager of the motel told the deputy she had responded to a knock at the door and was confronted by a man who pointed a handgun at her and demanded money. The manager handed the suspect a Clackamas County Bank bag containing money and receipts.

The suspect left the motel and ran toward Highway 26. He fled the scene in a smaller car that sounded like it lacked a muffler, according to the sheriff's office.

The suspect is described as light-skinned Hispanic man in his late 20s to 30s, with a skinny build, dark-colored eyes, and a thin, bony nose. He was wearing a black hoodie and jeans with a baggy crotch.

The sheriff's office released a sketch of the suspect on Thursday.

Anyone with information about the robbery or recognizes the suspect is asked to contact the sheriff's office tip line at 503-723-4949, or use the online email form at https://web3.clackamas.us/contact/tip.jsp. Please reference case number 18-009299.
