Man Robbed At Gunpoint In Bus Tunnel

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee November 4, 2010

Yeah, we've got more bad news about yet another robbery. It's that kind of morning.

Around 10:30pm on October 30th a man contacted officers near 4th and Pine and said he'd been robbed in the bus tunnel "two minutes ago."

The victim told police a man in his late teens had followed him in the tunnel, approached him on a stair case, and pushed him into a wall, before he stuck a handgun in his stomach and "demanded everything he had."

The suspect then reached in the victim's pocket and took his iPhone, and fled out of the bus tunnel.

The victim was able to give police good information about which way the suspect ran—on to Pine, and then onto 6th—but officers weren't able to find the suspect.

The good news, however, is that the report indicates police may have found footage of the suspect recorded by a bus tunnel security camera.
