Woman robbed at gunpoint near campus Thursday morning

Early this morning, another armed robbery occurred near the University of Oregon.

At 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning, a woman, 21, was approached by a man on Hilyard Street near East 15th Avenue. The man robbed her of her cash after threatening her with a gun, according to the Eugene Police Department.

The woman walked home and her roommate called 911 twenty minutes after the incident.

The police searched the area but did not find the suspect. He was described as a white male, approximately 5’10 to 6’0 foot, and around 180 pounds and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt.

This robbery occurred one block from a previous robbery last weekend, and continues a string of five robberies near UO in the last week.
