7-Eleven robbed at gunpoint in Beaverton
The Beaverton Police Department hopes the public can shed some light on the identity of a man who allegedly robbed a local convenience store.
Police responded to 7-Eleven at 9510 S.W. 125th Ave. in Beaverton around 2:56 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8, according to a news release.
The store clerk told authorities the man pointed a small black and silver handgun at him and demanded he put money and a very specific brand of cigarettes into a black backpack.
After receiving the ill-gotten goods, the suspect was last seen fleeing on foot toward Southwest Longhorn Lane. A police search with K9 assistance turned up empty.
The robber is believed to be a "younger" white man, approximately five feet five inches tall and with a small build. He was last seen wearing black pants, a black coat, black sunglasses, one black glove, a white bandanna covering his face and black-and-white shoes.
"It is probable the suspect smokes Newport 100 cigarettes because he demanded that specific type of cigarettes during the robbery," a spokesman for Beaverton Police wrote.
Anyone with relevant information is asked to call 503-629-0111.
