    Campus Crime Alert 2018-03-05

    Following the earlier UO Alert, a Campus Crime Alert was issued with more information about an armed robbery reported near campus the evening of March 5:

    An armed robbery was reported the evening of March 5 at 19th Avenue and Agate Street near the University of Oregon campus, with suspect descriptions similar to other recent robberies reported in the area.

    The robbery was reported to Eugene Police around 9:30 p.m., from Tom’s Market, at 1490 E. 19th Avenue; a store employee was threatened with a handgun. The first suspect was described as a black male, in his 20s, between 6-feet and 6’2″ tall with a heavy or muscular build, wearing a black beanie-style cap, a black mask covering the lower part of his mouth, and a long-sleeved black jacket and black pants. The second suspect was described as a white male, medium build, wearing a dark blue beanie-style cap, a dark blue sweatshirt with gray hood and a logo, black pants, and black shoes. Suspects left on foot to the south.

    Suspects with similar descriptions were reportedly involved in other armed robberies in the area in recent days according to Eugene Police.

    Both Eugene and University of Oregon police have searched the area extensively, but the suspects have not been found and police continue to search the broader community. The suspects should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Anyone with information about the suspects or the incidents should contact Eugene Police at 541-682-5111, or UO Police at 541-346-2919.

    Updates regarding this incident, when and if available, will be posted on the UOPD website at police.uoregon.edu.
