Two juveniles arrested for alleged armed robbery
Two juveniles are facing robbery charges after a group of four people held up a gas station at gunpoint early Sunday morning in Beaverton.
The suspect's names have not been released because of their ages.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a report that four people wearing masks and gloves robbed the ARCO gas station at 15320 N.W. Cornell Road around 5:25 a.m. Nov. 28.
The suspects fled on foot, but Hillsboro and Beaverton police tracked down two of them with a K9 unit, the sheriff's office said. Both were detained and charged with first-degree robbery. Detectives believe they are linked to two other similar robberies.
The investigation is still underway. Anyone with information is asked to call WCSO at 503-846-2700.
