Store owner tackles armed teen robbery suspect

A store owner wrestled an armed 15-year-old robbery suspect to the ground Thursday afternoon and held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived, authorities said.

The incident happened about 2:20 p.m. at the S-n-K Market located at 4791 SE Thiessen Road.

The teen suspect came into the store acting nervous and as he approached the counter with a soda, the store owner noticed a gun, according to Detective Jeffrey Green with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.

“The store owner and suspect got into a wrestling match for the weapon, which the store owner was able to take from the suspect,” Green said.

Deputies later found a mask, gloves and a demand note. The weapon, a black powder handgun, was not loaded at the time of the robbery.

The teen’s name was not released.

He was taken to a juvenile detention facility. Charges were still being decided.
