Pint-sized porn purloiner still at large

Perhaps you can help police find this diminutive gun-toting robber with a penchant for sex toys …

It only took a moment for this short suspect to rob an adult products store of money – and a sex toy – before escaping into the pre-dawn darkness.

Police are keeping a sharp lookout for gun-armed bandit that robbed an adult video store. At an estimated height of about five feet – cops are forced to look for this small suspect with enhanced diligence.

Portland Police Bureau (PPB) Robbery Division detectives have little to go on, said Public Information Officer Sgt. Pete Simpson about this early-morning robbery.

“On March 17, 2014, at 5:11 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the Blue Spot Adult Video store, located at 3232 NE 82nd Avenue, on the report of an armed robbery.”

lthough this store has a sign posted that reads “You must be 18 to enter; please have ID ready” – a child-size armed robber strode in and robbed the retailer anyway.

Employees told officers that, just before dawn broke, a short suspect entered the store armed with a handgun, and demanded money. “After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect ran out of the store,” Simpson reported.

But not only did the petite purloiner pinch cash, he also grabbed a sex toy before fleeing the scene.

Several officers checked the area but did not locate anyone matching the suspect’s description – which included holding stolen cash and an “adult product”.

“The suspect is described as a Hispanic male [of undetermined age], 5′ tall, short dark hair, wearing all-dark clothing, armed with a handgun,” Simpson described. “Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Robbery detectives at (503) 823-0405.”
