PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland police are asking the public to help locate a man who they say sexually assaulted an employee at Pussycats lingerie shop during an armed robbery earlier this week.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for the suspect, 31-year-old James Ringang Ellis, on charges of first-degree sex abuse, first-degree sodomy and first-degree robbery.

Ellis allegedly entered the store, located at 3414 Northeast 82nd Avenue on Monday, Oct. 10, at about 3:20 a.m. He was armed with a gun and demanded money. Police say he sexually assaulted a 34-year-old employee before leaving.

Police say Ellis is about 5-foot-8 and 165 pounds.

Ellis is considered armed and dangerous and people should not approach him. If you see him, call 911 immediately.
