Man robs Ore. bank, steals car containing 2 dogs

PORTLAND, Ore. – Police say a man robbed a north Portland Bank of America branch on Wednesday, then stole a Jaguar with two Chihuahuas inside.

He crashed the car a short time later in a fast-food restaurant lot and fled on foot.

The car and dogs belonged to Melanie Davis, who was in the bank during the holdup. She tells The Oregonian the man burst into the bank shouting profanity, said it was a robbery and threatened to shoot those inside if they didn't cooperate.

After grabbing the money, he demanded Davis' car keys.

The dogs were recovered unharmed.

Police spokeswoman Detective Mary Wheat says Portland police and the FBI are looking for the robber.
