On October 20, at approximately 7:45 p.m., police responded to a department store on the 3500 block of West 11th for a robbery that had just occurred. Responding police officers received information that a male suspect (in photo) exited the store without attempting to pay for power tools he had taken. The suspect was contacted by a 43-year-old male employee who he threatened with a knife before leaving the area in an SUV that was waiting for him out front. The vehicle is described as a light colored, grey or silver, SUV with a spare tire on the back, similar in style to a 2006-2012 Toyota Rav4.
If you have any information regarding the identity of the suspect, please contact Detective Branden Esch at 541.682.5176 or by email at BEsch@Eugene-OR.gov
