Portland police are investigating a robbery that occurred Wednesday night outside the Ahram Halal Grocery at 630 Forest Ave.

The store’s owner was closing at 11 p.m. and walked to a nearby trash bin in the rear parking lot when he was confronted by two men. He said both pointed guns at him and demanded his wallet, police said.

One of the men was 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 with a dark mask over his face and a brown jacket with the hood up, police said. They did not provide a description of the second suspect.

The men then ran toward Deering Avenue with items stolen from the victim, police said. They did not say what was stolen.

Police asked that anyone with information call them at 874-8533.
