A call to the 9-1-1 Center on Wednesday morning, November 11, reported a domestic violence incident – which led to the dispatch of Portland Police Bureau (PPB) East Precinct officers at 9:39 a.m. to a home in the Parkrose Heights neighborhood, in the 10300 block of NE Brazee Street.

Officers looking into the situation found “probable cause” to arrest a male suspect for domestic violence related crimes. The officers also learned that the man they sought had a gun and plenty of ammunition.

“The officers attempted to speak with the suspect who was inside his vehicle; the suspect drove away at a high rate of speed, and officers were not able to immediately find him,” a PPB spokesperson said.

Dispatchers put out a bulletin to all police units to be on the lookout for the make and model of the car, and provided the wanted man’s description.

At 12:25 p.m., officers got a tip that the suspect was stopped at the Les Schwab Tires store on NE 122nd Avenue at Erin Way, and they pulled up and took him into custody.

What the officers didn’t expect to find was to that the man had illegal body armor, and was carrying a loaded semiautomatic handgun, with four extra magazines on his belt.
