Two juveniles were taken into custody and face extradition to Washington to face multiple charges
VANCOUVER – Two juveniles were taken into custody in Clackamas Saturday after a police pursuit that began near the Vancouver Mall.
On Saturday (Jan. 21) at about 3 p.m., Vancouver Police responded to a report of a robbery/carjacking at the Vancouver Mall, (8900 NE Vancouver Mall Dr.).
The victim had just parked her car and was walking toward the mall, when two males approached, demanded her keys and one of the suspects displayed a knife and threatened the victim. Out of fear for her safety, she handed over her keys and the two males got into her car and drove off. The victim was not injured.
Shortly after the robbery, Vancouver Police Department units spotted the victim’s vehicle in the area and attempted a traffic stop. The suspects continued to drive off and Vancouver Police continued to pursue the suspects. The pursuit ended in Clackamas County, Oregon. Both suspects, a 13-year-old male and a 14-year-old male, were taken into custody and lodged at the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
An emergency warrant has been entered for extradition into Washington for the charges of Robbery/ Carjacking, Felony Harassment, Elude, and Possession of Stolen Motor Vehicle.
