Armed robbers pepper-spray Gresham bar employee
A bar in Gresham was robbed at gunpoint and an employee was pepper sprayed at approximately 7:30 a.m Saturday March 30, at the Pleasant Home Saloon at 31637 S.E. Dodge Park Boulevard.
Two employees at the bar told Multnomah County Sheriff Office (MCSO) deputies that two men wearing masks who were armed with handguns forced their way into the back of the building, according to a KOIN 6 News report. KOIN 6 News is an Outlook media partner.

The suspects left with an unknown amount of cash. The bar wasn't open at the time and the two employees were the only people inside.
