TIGARD, Ore. (KPTV) - The Tigard Police Department is asking for the public’s help to find a suspect in an armed robbery that happened on New Year’s Eve.

At 11 a.m. that morning, a man walked into a Foxy’s on Southwest Pacific Highway near Southwest Canterbury Lane. He pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the employee working at the register, then walked out.

“We have him directly in front of our cameras. Basically, a full eyes view of our entire bar. Except for his face was covered --[he] addresses our bartender, and he’s just like, ‘give us all the cash out of the drawer.’”

The manager of Foxy’s says she’s thankful nobody was injured but says the suspect managed to get away with more than a thousand dollars.

“She was absolutely stunned,” Foxy’s manager Teresa Holt, says of her employee. “Somebody coming up to you in a life-threatening manner.”

Foxy’s says they hope by sharing their story, their community can get some closure.
