WILSONVILLE, Ore. -- Wilsonville police have identified the suspects in two terrifying muggings along Canyon Creek Road earlier this month.

In the first robbery, two armed men wearing dark-colored hoodies and bandannas as masks robbed a man in a parking lot near the 26000 block of Canyon Creek Road. The suspects demanded that the victim empty his pockets, took an undisclosed amount of cash and other items, and fled on foot, according to Lt. Robert Wurpes with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Also on March 24, near the same location, another man was assaulted and robbed, Wurpes said.

Investigators now believe that 20-year-old Andrew Sandford Gossett (above left) and 19-year-old Travis Andrew Wyatt (above right) were behind the attacks. Warrants have been issued for both of their arrests on several charges, including robbery, assault and kidnapping.

Gossett was described as a white man, about 6 feet tall, weighing 140 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. Wyatt is also a white man and is 6 feet tall, weighing 140 pounds with light brown hair.

Police warn that both suspects should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Anyone who spots them or has tips that may help investigators find them was urged to call 911.
