One Injured in Armed Robbery at Woodburn Restaurant
Woodburn police officers are seeking the public’s help finding a man who robbed Gina’s Restaurant at knifepoint and injured one of its employees.
On May 24 at approximately 9:32 a.m., Woodburn police officers responded to Gina’s Restaurant, located at 1186 N. Pacific Hwy., on a report of an armed robbery. Police found two victims inside the restaurant, one who received a serious laceration to her arm during a struggle with the suspect who had a knife. Local EMS transported the victim to an area hospital in stable condition. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police were able to locate nearby video surveillance of the suspect moments before the armed robbery and those photos are included with this release.
He is a white adult male in his 20s, approximately 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds. He had medium to neck-length dark brown hair. The suspect was wearing a white baseball cap with a blue or green bill, white t-shirt, dark green coveralls and light colored shoes with dark soles.
Police believe the suspect was in the area between the south side (back) of Gina’s Restaurant/Woodburn Laundromat and the Woodburn Les Schwab parking lot as early as 7:50 a.m. until the time of the robbery.
