Home Invasion robberies between armed bandits and residents are rare in Southeast -- but here's one

DAVID F. ASHTON - An East Precinct officer searches for evidence, after a rare home invasion robbery on S.E. Woodstock Boulevard near 74th.  The sound of someone pounding on their front door, begging for help, aroused a Mt. Scott-Arleta couple early Sunday morning, December 27. Opening the door turned out to be a misstep that led to their becoming victims of an armed home-invasion robbery.

East Precinct officers responded at 2:48 a.m. Arriving at the home, in the 7400 block of S.E. Woodstock Boulevard, they learned that when a resident opened the door, the male suspect had pushed his way into the house.

"The suspect threatened the victim and his girlfriend with a gun, while demanding all of their valuables; then left with a cell phone, laptop, wallet, and the victim's 2019 Acura," reported Portland Police spokesperson Officer Derek Carmon about the incident. "There is no suspect information, and no arrests have been made."

There is also no public information on why this particular home may have been targeted for such an unusual residential crime.
