Home invasion robbery near campus sparks Eugene Police investigation

Eugene Police Department is investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred at the home of a University student along East 17th Avenue near Hilyard Street shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon.

A police department press release described the suspects as four men in their late 20s, who were last seen wearing dark clothing. One suspect assaulted the tenant while two others seized property from the residency. All three suspects then left the scene in a newer maroon station wagon, possibly a Dodge Magnum, driven by a fourth suspect.

EPD Public Information Director Melinda McLaughlin said the robbery was “not gang related.”@@[email protected]@
