MILTON-FREEWATER, Ore. (AP) - Police in Milton-Freewater, Oregon, are looking for two suspects who tackled a man, bound him with tape and then stole a car.

Police Chief Doug Boedigheimer says the robbery occurred Tuesday night as the 59-year-old victim was working on a vehicle in his shop.

The assailants took vehicle keys from his pocket, and then used the electric keys to find a vehicle. They stole a maroon Park Avenue with a cracked window and the Washington plate: AGV0067.

The victim suffered facial injuries.

The East Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/9t29OJ ) that an armed robber targeted the First Stop Mart on July 10. Though robberies are rare in Milton-Freewater, the chief says the crimes might not be related because they were committed in such different ways.
