PORTLAND, Ore. — Police are investigating a string of armed robberies at Portland taverns.
The Portland Police Bureau says three bars were hit early Monday — two in the North Precinct and one in the Central Precinct.
Witnesses at two of the robberies said two men demanded money, cell phones and wallets. At the other robbery, the men fled after a security guard intervened.
About a dozen bars have been hit in the past month. Police say there are similarities in the robberies, but they have yet to confirm the same men are responsible for all of them.
