Seized items on patrol-car hoodAt approximately 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 10, 2016, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the report of a robbery that had just occurred at a small park in an unincorporated neighborhood in Clackamas County.

The victim -- Demarcus Preston, 46, of Portland -- told deputies he had made arrangements online and over the phone to purchase a Sony PlayStation from the suspect. They agreed to meet at the park, located at 7510 SE Thiessen Rd.

When Preston met the suspect at the park, he found the PlayStation box empty -- and the suspect was reportedly pointing a gun at him.

Preston told authorities that he was able to disarm the suspect -- but the suspect retrieved his gun from the ground before fleeing the scene.

Deputies investigated -- and determined the identity and location of the suspect.

The suspect -- Keenan O'Shea Lee, 18, of Milwaukie -- was taken into custody near the same park that afternoon without incident. When Lee was arrested, he was in possession of an empty PlayStation box, a concealed loaded pistol and a ski mask.

Keenan's Lee's complete booking info is here. Bail is set at $280,000.

Photos of the suspect and seized items are linked above.

A reminder from the Sheriff's Office: If you chose to purchase items second-hand via the internet or other sources, take caution while doing so. Choose a location to meet in a public place where you feel safe. Take a friend with you, if possible. Be aware of your surroundings, and examine the product to make sure it's what you agreed to buy.
