Home Invasion Armed Robbery, Assault Suspect On the Run Outside Eagle Point, Two Suspects in Custody

EAGLE POINT, Ore. – A home invasion robbery suspect is on the loose, believed to be armed and dangerous. Victims described the fleeing suspect as an Asian male, and he is potentially armed with a handgun. The suspect fled from a vehicle outside of Eagle Point on HWY 140 near mile marker 13 and is believed to be on foot. If you have information on the suspect’s whereabouts, do not approach, call 911 immediately. 

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies, Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers, and Eagle Point Police Department (EPPD) officers responded to a home-invasion armed robbery and assault in progress at a marijuana grow near Eagle Point Thursday evening. Around 9:30 p.m. ECSO dispatch received a report of a break-in and assault at a warehouse on Lake Creek Loop, off HWY 140 near Eagle Point. Upon JCSO’s arrival, one suspect was detained, and two fled. One of the fleeing suspects was located and arrested attempting to hitchhike on HWY 140 a few hours later. The other suspect is still loose and is considered armed and dangerous.

Investigations are ongoing with deputies working several leads to identify and track the outstanding suspect. Detectives from Major Assault Death Investigative Unit (MADIU) and the Illegal Marijuana Enforcement Team (IMET) are assisting investigations.
