PORTLAND An armed robber donning a Scream mask held up a Southeast Portland barber shop Thursday afternoon, police said.

The suspect, gun in hand, busted into Rooks Barber shop at 3580 Southeast Division Street demanding cash, said Sgt. Pete Simpson with Portland police.

The crook then took off westbound on Southeast Division Street, Simpson said.

After scouring the neighborhood, police turned up nothing.

The suspect was described as a 6-foot-tall skinny white man. Because he was wearing a mask, police don t know how old he might be.

Anyone with information was asked to call police at 503-823-0405.
