PORTLAND – A teenager armed with a machete robbed a man in Southeast Portland early Wednesday morning, police said.
Just before 2 a.m., 21-year-old Adam Hampton told police a black Ford Expedition pulled up beside him near Southeast 159th Avenue and Southeast Main Street and a suspect got out armed with a machete, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland police.
Hampton told police the suspect demanded his headphones, got back in the SUV and left, Simpson said.
After Hampton called 9-1-1, police said the SUV returned. A different man got out, gave back the headphones and apologized.
The SUV then left but was spotted by police and stopped.
Six people were in the vehicle, including the suspect who was arrested and taken to juvenile detention on first-degree robbery charges.
