Robbery Suspect Caught After Witness Pursuit

BEND, OR -- A Bend man was arrested following a robbery at the Albertson's on NE Third Street, thanks in part to an observant witness. Police responded to the store at about 6:45 p.m., Wednesday, after the suspect allegedly threatened a cashier and demanded money. He left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. 

 

A citizen saw what happened and followed the man east on NE Revere, then south on Fifth Street. Officers searched the area and contacted 45-year-old Marcus Thornsberry at NE Fifth and Quimby.  He matched the suspect description and they say seized cash thought to be related to the robbery. He’s charged with robbery and theft.
