When you see this guy pointing a really big gun directly at the clerk’s chest, you’ll see why we’re asking you to turn him in to CRIME STOPPERS and earn $1,000 cash reward …
The “Peep Hole” on SE 122nd Avenue has been a fixture of outer East Portland for years. It was held up at gunpoint on June 7.

The “Peep Hole” is an “adult superstore” which has been doing business in the Midway area for years.
Very early on a Sunday morning – 3:47 a.m., June 7, to be exact – a man, wearing a black and red knit hat, a black-colored jacket with a fur-lined hood, as well as possibly an orange colored shirt and blue jean pants, came strolling into the store.
This guy isn’t coming to shop – his goal is to rob the store.
With him was a gun – a very big gun. The white male, in his 40’s, raised it and pointed it directly at the clerk’s chest, demanding money from the cash register. After grabbing an undisclosed amount of money, the 6′ tall, 150 pound suspect fled the store.
Until this guy is behind bars, any business in outer East Portland – especially those open late at night – are potential targets. And next time, he may pull the trigger.
Take a look at the gun – and how this goon is holding it. Help put him behind bars before he hurts or kills someone.
“The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, is asking for your help in identifying an armed robbery suspect caught on surveillance tape,” Brandi Gilbert, the organization’s coordinator stated.
“Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you can remain anonymous,” Gilbert added. “Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357) or leave a tip online at www.crimestoppersoforegon.com.”
