PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A suspect who is possibly armed remains at large following a car crash in Washington County, authorities say.
The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a crash involving a stolen car near Northwest Murray Boulevard and Highway 26 shortly before 1 p.m. on Wednesday. Once officials arrived at the scene, the driver reportedly fled the area — running away on foot.
The suspect is possibly armed with a gun, according to WCSO.
According to a tweet from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, deputies searched for the suspect near the wooded area close to SW 158th Ave. and SW Walker Road. The suspect is described as a male wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, and a black mask.
Authorities were asking community members in the area to stay inside and call 911 if they see “anything suspicious.”
However, officials suspended the search by 3:25 p.m. despite no arrest being made.
The description of the suspect is a male wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and a black mask. If community members in the area have any information related to the crash or the driver of the Volkswagen, they are asked to call non-emergency dispatch at (503) 629-0111.
