At 10:20 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 23, 2013, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to the Bank of America at 9171 SE. 82nd Ave after a 50-year-old male -- later identified as Mr. Tim Alsip -- allegedly gave a bank teller a note stating: "This is a hold up. Give me a dollar."

Mr. Alsip reportedly received a single dollar from the teller, and then went and had a seat in the lobby.

The Sheriff's Office arrived at the bank to find Mr. Alsip waiting in the lobby for deputies to arrest him.

Mr. Alsip was transported to the Clackamas County Jail on robbery charges. His booking info is here.

Clackamas County deputies have dealt with Timothy Alsip several times this last week due to unusual behavior. Alsip has flagged down citizens prompting them to call law enforcement or flagged down law-enforcement personnel himself. He has been complaining of various problems that don't seem to exist. The issues he has reported to deputies include being hit by a car, pain in his mouth due to dental issues, and overdosing on drugs. Deputies spoke with Alsip during these encounters, determined the need for medical attention, if necessary, and requested medical response. None of the issues reported were actually law-enforcement matters.

His behavior today is consistent with the behavior he has displayed over the last week.
