Salem Police Detectives are seeking assistance from the public in identifying a suspect in a home invasion robbery that occurred in northeast Salem on March 5.
The suspect, armed with a handgun, forced his way into the residence of an elderly female on D St NE shortly after 10:00 am on March 5. The victim was able to escape and run from her home to summon help, but the suspect stole the victim's vehicle and fled the scene prior to the arrival of the police. The suspect abandoned the vehicle nearby and his image was captured on surveillance video as he was running from the vehicle.
The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous, and anyone who knows of the suspect's whereabouts should call 911. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Salem Police Detective Corporal Jake Burke at 503-540-2463.
