CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - A police chase shut down part of southbound Interstate 205 in Clackamas County on Wednesday afternoon.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office said two lanes of I-205 south were closed at around 12:20 p.m. just south of Highway 213.

Deputies said the chase involved an armed suspect. The suspect, later identified as Dwayne Breis Robinson, 29, was taken into custody. 

Vancouver police said it began with a knifepoint robbery at a Shell station convenience store on the 11200 block of Northeast Fourth Plain Boulevard at around 11:50 a.m.

The suspect got away and a description of the suspect vehicle was broadcast to officers in the area.

An officer spotted the car and began to follow it. A chase ensued on city streets in Vancouver, before heading down I-205.

Other law enforcement agencies joined in as the chase crossed into Oregon.

Spike strips were deployed at least once, according to police, and the situation ended with a police PIT maneuver on the suspect.

Deputies said Robinson was armed with a knife.

Oregon Department of Transportation cameras captured the chase unfolding for miles south along I-205.

Once the suspect vehicle was stopped, there was a large police presence along the highway.

Deputies said the scene was cleared and all lanes had reopened by 1 p.m.
