PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland Police arrested a man Monday night for a crime spree that spanned both sides of the Willamette River.

Police say the robbery spree started just before 9:30 Monday night after someone shot up Chico’s, a business located at 2405 W. Burnside St. Nobody was hurt and the suspect got away.

While police were investigating that crime, they got a call reporting a burglar armed with a shotgun in the area of SW Vista Ave. and Market Street Dr. Nobody was hurt and no shots were fired but again, the suspect got away.

At 9:15 p.m., Beaverton Police responded to an armed robbery in the 8200 block of SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy. The suspect robbed a man with a shotgun after he withdrew money from the ATM, according to police.

At 10:30, Portland Police responded to a traffic crash in the 6300 block of SW Capitol Hwy. One of the drivers in the crash was speeding away from a man armed with a shotgun who had just tried to rob her.

Five minutes later the Swan Mart on SW Barbur Blvd. was robbed by a man with a shotgun and just before 11:00 the Milwaukie Market on SE Milwaukie Blvd. was robbed, again by a man with a shotgun.

Police were on the scene of that final robbery when officers saw the suspect in the area and arrested him. An officer recognized him from surveillance video.

26-year-old Patrick Miles Gazeley-Romney was arrested. He faces robbery charges and will be in court Wednesday. Police say he could face additional charges.

Police also say they found a car and other evidence Gazeley-Romney allegedly used in the robberies, including a shotgun.
