PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Vancouver police are looking for two teenagers suspected of robbing convenience stores on Southeast Mill Plain Blvd.
Vancouver police said the first robbery was on August 4, when two 16 or 17-year-old boys went into a Chevron store at 14125 SE Mill Plain Blvd. When the clerk tried to confront them for stealing, one elbowed him in the face. A firearm fell out of the suspect’s sweatshirt. He picked it up and they both ran away.
Another robbery happened at the 7-Eleven at 11703 SE Mill Plain Blvd. on August 12. A similar confrontation happened with one suspect shoving the clerk to the ground and stepping on her as he fled.
The suspects are believed to be the same in both cases. One is described as black, 5-foot-11, thin with an athletic build and brown hair. The other is mixed race or Hispanic, 5-foot-1 with a thin build and longer brown hair.
They were captured on surveillance video during the August 12 robbery.
