Rainier Police and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office are checking into a report of an armed robbery that took place last night in downtown. Shortly after 10 pm last night, a woman called Columbia County 911, claiming that she had been robbed at knifepoint. The woman says that a hispanic male accosted her outside of a downtown restaurant, stealing her purse and the car that she was driving. She also claims that the man said that he had been sent to kill her. Rainier Police alerted other nearby jurisdictions, also asking for additional resources. The area was checked, and they did find the car that had been taken. That was impounded for additional forensic examination. The suspect is described as a hispanic male, wearing a sweater of unknown color and blue jeans. The investigation is continuing.
