Creswell, Ore. – The Lane County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call at approximately 8:30 p.m. of armed masked gunmen in the 200 block of North Mill Street in Creswell.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the initial investigation indicates that three white males between the ages of 20 and 35 years old donned masks and forced their way into an apartment where a 54 year old female from Junction City, a 65 year old male from Creswell, and a 72 year old female from Newport were inside. The suspects were reportedly armed with handguns and restrained the 54 year old female and 72 year old female’s hands. The suspects threatened the victims if they did not comply, and fled the residence with an undisclosed amount of property, including a military knife collection. The victims suffered non-life threatening injuries during the incident.
The suspects fled in an older model, white Ford Explorer or Chevrolet Blazer sport utility vehicle, or similar SUV. Deputies are speaking with local residents who may have witnessed the incident to help provide a more detailed description of the suspects.
One victim posted via social media that the masks worn by the armed robbers were similar to the ones pictured here.
Also taken were black powder hand guns, ammunition, military ID, credit cards, a cell phone, and a 130 year old black leather covered flask with level view like one pictured (only black.)
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who has information on the identity and location of the three men responsible for last night’s robbery to contact the Lane County Sheriff’s Office at 541-682-4141.
