Eugene Police share info on armed robbery near UO

The Eugene Police Department issued a news release on Friday, November 16 about an armed robbery that was reported near the University of Oregon campus on Thursday evening, which was the subject of a UO Alert. The initial report gave the location of the incident as 17th Avenue and Alder Street, which is inside the university’s Clery boundary. Upon investigation, police found the incident occurred at Alder Alley, which is west and outside of the Clery boundary. This means that a Campus Crime Alert will not be issued, and the incident will not be part of the UO’s calendar year 2018 crime statistics. This is a Eugene Police investigation, and the UO will have no further information available for release.

Street Robbery at 17th Avenue/Alder Aly
Case Number 18-18228

At 9:54 p.m. on November 15, Eugene Police officers were called to E. 17th Avenue and Alder Alley after two people were robbed at gunpoint.

The victims, a woman, age 18, and a man, age 21, reported parking their vehicle on E. 17th and seeing a man across the street talking on a cell phone, who then crossed the street and stood nearby. As the victims finished unloading their car and started to walk away, the suspect called to them. When they turned around, the suspect robbed them of their purse and wallet at gunpoint and then fled on foot from the area. A Lane County Sheriff’s Office K9 responded to help with a search of the area, and officers spent almost an hour canvassing the area but did not locate the suspect.

Neither of the victims were UO students, but UOPD assisted in the response and sent out notifications to their students.

The suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s, 5’9” tall, with a heavy build. He was last seen wearing all-black clothing and a dark-colored bandana over his face.

If anyone has information in this case, they should call 541-682-5111.

UOPD issues all clear after suspicious package reported in PLC

The University of Oregon Police Department has issued the “all clear” for Prince Lucien Campbell Hall, after a faculty member reported a suspicious package had been received on May 22.

UOPD first cleared the faculty member’s department, housed on a lower level of the building. In coordination with the Eugene Police Department’s bomb squad, other sections of the building were also evacuated as a precaution.

A short time later, the suspicious package was deemed harmless and the “all clear” was given.

“While ultimately not an actual threat, the faculty member did the right thing in contacting police,” said Mathew Carmichael, chief of police. “The package had suspicious markings and was sent without request from somewhere in the mid-west, adding to the faculty member’s concern. Community members reporting these types of incidents is imperative to keeping our campus safe. See something, say something.”

PLC and the surrounding area were returned to normal operations by 5:15 p.m.
