PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -– A man accused of robbing two Portland area stores at knifepoint, including one in which he tied up a pregnant shopkeeper, has been indicted by a Multnomah County grand jury.
Thirty-one-year-old Eric Eno faces two counts of second-degree kidnapping, and one count each of identity theft and second-degree burglary.
The first alleged robbery occurred April 22 at Little Things, a jewelry and accessories store located at 1720 NW Lovejoy St. The victim, Andrea Angell, who was eight-months pregnant at the time, told KOIN that the suspect tied her up with a scarf and stole cash and jewelry. On his way out, he allegedly took a picture of her driver’s license, stole her keys and threatened her.
On the evening of May 1, Eno reportedly robbed the Wigland wig store, located at Northeast 10th Avenue and Broadway Street. He allegedly showed a knife and tied up an employee in the back room. Portland police said the victim untied himself and struck Eno with a golf club before Eno fled.
Eno was later caught and arrested by officers that same night at the Stanford’s restaurant in the Lloyd Center Mall.
Eno was scheduled to be arraigned Monday. He remains lodged in the Multnomah County Jail.
