PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland Police are investigating a robbery at Tre Bone Pet Supply on N. Lombard St. It happened Friday morning about 10:20.

Co-owner Serge Ouattara was working when the robber came in.

“He came behind the register and I said what are you doing? He said, put your hands up I want the register. So I grabbed his hand, grabbed him by the collar, I pulled him out and then push him all the way outside the store and slam him against a tree.”

Ouattara says that is when the suspect pepper sprayed him and ran away.

A police K9 searched the area and didn’t find the suspect.
