Police are looking for evidence to support the arrest of a suspect linked to the robbery a coffee stand on Sunday.
According to police, at 9:39 p.m. on Jan. 26, East Precinct officers responded to the report of a robbery at Dutch Brothers Coffee, located at 13640 Southeast Division Street. As officers were driving to the location, additional information was broadcast that the suspect was last seen running eastbound on Division Street and that he implied that he had a handgun.
Several officers, including a Police K-9, searched the neighborhood but did not locate anyone matching the suspect's description.
Approximately 15 minutes after clearing the neighborhood perimeter, Matthew Paul Stockwell, 23, flagged down an officer to report that he'd been robbed. The officer realized that Stockwell closely matched the description of the Dutch Brothers robbery suspect. Stockwell then provided enough information to identify himself as the robbery suspect, and he was subsequently arrested.
Stockwell was subsequently booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Robbery in the Second Degree and will be arraigned today.
On Monday police asked the public to help find evidence in the robbery. It is believed that Stockwell discarded an orange zebra-print jacket, a dark green jacket, a white bandana, and an undisclosed amount of cash between Southeast 139th and 145th Avenues.
