PORTLAND, Ore. — A man accused of using a cutting torch on a Portland ATM was wearing armored underwear when he was arrested.

KPTV reports an officer responded to the ATM early Sunday and confronted the suspect in a parking lot.

Police say he sprayed pepper spray and ran before he was chased down.

The 32-year-old man was wearing two ballistic vests and had ballistic panels sewn into undergarments covering his arms, legs, back and crotch.

He was armed with a knife and had a stun gun and acetylene torch in a backpack. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on multiple charges including being a felon in possession of body armor.
