GRESHAM -- A man had his pickup truck stolen at gunpoint Sunday afternoon near NE 180th and Glisan.

The man had parked and started to walk toward Dotty's Deli when two men confronted him, according to Sgt. Claudio Grandjean with the Gresham Police Department.

The two men were standing in front of a vacant store located next to Dotty's. One walked by, said "hey" and pulled a handgun from the back of his pants, Grandjean said.

Then, the men ordered him to get his silver, 2001 Dodge Ram four-door pickup and drive with them.  After a few minutes, they forced him out of the truck and stole it, along with his wallet and cell phone.

The victim was not injured but said it was a terrifying ordeal. His daughter told KGW he thought he was going to die.

The man with the gun was described as a black male, age 20, about 5 foot 6 and 120 pounds with a shaved head. He was wearing a black baseball cap with three or four white letters on the front.

The second suspect was a white man, about 30 to 35, about 6 feet and 150 pounds with a thin line of facial hair on the jaw line. He was wearing a brown button-up shirt and blue jeans.

The truck had a license plate 764DPM and remains missing.
