The Clark County Sheriff’s Office says a 66-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries Monday night during a home-invasion robbery that allegedly involved his teenage granddaughter and two unknown teen boys.
Four juvenile suspects were arrested later Monday in Clatsop County, Ore., according to a sheriff’s office news release.
Deputies were dispatched at 6:19 p.m. to 2542 N.E. 83rd Way in Hazel Dell for a report of a robbery. When deputies arrived, they found a man suffering from significant injuries that included stab wounds to his neck, according to the sheriff’s office.
“The male was able to relay his granddaughter and two unknown male teens entered his house, assaulted him, and stole his wallet, cellphone and vehicle,” the news release said.
The man was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
About three hours later, Clatsop County sheriff’s deputies and Seaside, Ore., police officers located the stolen vehicle. Law enforcement from four agencies in Oregon pursued the car when it sped off, but the driver eventually crashed and three occupants were taken into custody, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.
A fourth occupant ran from the car but was apprehended “some time later,” the sheriff’s office said.
One of the juveniles was treated for minor injuries.
The robbery suspects range in age from 14 to 17. Their names were not released.
The Clark County Major Crimes Unit is investigating and coordinating with Oregon law enforcement agencies.
