PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A shopkeeper who is eight months pregnant was able to loosen herself after being tied up during a Monday evening jewelry-store armed robbery in Portland.
The robbery happened around 7:15 p.m. at Little Things jewelry shop at 1720 NW Lovejoy St., just outside of the Pearl District in northwest Portland.
The suspect took money and jewelry. The robber also took a picture of the woman's driver's license and stole her keys -- threatening her, and saying he knows where she lives, as he took off.
"To prey on a pregnant woman is just something that I would never imagine anyone doing," said the woman's husband, Cory Angell, who spoke to KOIN 6 News Monday night.
The suspect is described as a white male in his late-20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall, with a reddish/gray goatee. At the time of the robbery he was wearing dark clothes, a backpack and a black baseball cap.
Police said the stranger walked in, pretending to be a shopper, before robbing Angell's wife Andrea at knifepoint and tying her up. She was able to loosen herself to call 911.
Police raced to the small jewelry shop, along with the victim's frantic husband. Husband Cory Angell is thankful the suspect didn't physically hurt his pregnant wife during the robbery. She was, however, shaken and traumatized.
"I was really scared," said her husband.
