WEST LINN - On Wed. Sept. 28, 2011 Manuel Vallejo DeJesus reported his car stolen from the Albertson's parking lot by a man with a knife at 9:09 A.M. Mr. DeJesus was not hurt.
The vehicle is described as a 1995 Mercedes Benz C-280 sedan, white in color, Oregon License 867CFJ. The car has tinted windows and chrome wheels.
Mr. DeJesus was working in the store and went outside on a break; he drove his car to the loading dock area behind the store and was approached by a white male adult, about 30 years old, slender to average build with short light brown hair and a full beard. He was wearing a black trench coat.
The suspect approached the car, and asked Mr. DeJesus for a cigarette, he declined. The subject then came back a few minutes later and asked for Mr. DeJesus' identification inferring that he was a law enforcement officer. The victim refused and the suspect opened the door of the car and held a knife to the victim and ordered him from the car. The car was last seen turning onto 10th St. from Blankenship.
