A man is in the hospital after he allegedly attempted an armed robbery at a bar in northeast Portland just after midnight on Saturday and was taken down by patrons before officers arrived, according to police.
Jared Berglund manages a bar just a couple doors down from the where the attempted robbery happened.
Even though he’s a competitor with that location, he said, things like this hit close to home.
“We all try to look out for each other no matter what the case may be,” Berglund said.
Police responded at about 12:30 a.m. to the 10800 block of Northeast Sandy Boulevard after reports of a robbery with a gun. When they arrived, police said they found the suspect beaten and subdued.
An ambulance transported the suspect to the hospital in a stretcher. There, he remains in custody and faces a second-degree robbery charge.
