TROUTDALE, Ore. (KOIN) — A suspect in an armed robbery was arrested after being spotted by an off-duty deputy in Troutdale.

The search for the suspect commenced on Thursday afternoon near South Troutdale Road, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. MCSO said the suspect was “known to law enforcement and will be contacted at a later time.”

Early Friday morning, MCSO said an off-duty deputy spotted the suspect walking on Southeast Stark Street, just west of Troutdale Road. Once additional deputies responded to the scene, they arrested the 28-year-old man without incident.

It remains unclear at this time what was robbed or who the suspect is. MCSO did not clarify it was an armed robby until announcing the suspect was in custody on Friday.
