Ore. robbery victims say pit bull threatened them

From San Antonio Express-News

Portland police say a father and son gave up their backpacks to a robber who threatened them with a pit bull.
Officers say the robber pulled on the dog's leash Sunday afternoon as if he were trying to hold back the animal, so the two gave up the packs.
The pair had been walking their bicycles along the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade flanking the Willamette River. Officers say 41-year-old Rodney Graves threw his bicycle at the robber, who continued to make threats.
Officers say they arrested 29-year-old Jan Leith Haga Jr., who didn't have an address, beneath a nearby bridge. One of the packs was recovered, and the white and gray dog was turned over to the county animal control unit.
