At about 6:45 PM tonight, Eugene Police responded to a report of an Armed Robbery that had just occurred in the Parking lot of J.C. Penny's at Valley River Mall. A man approached the lone female victim in the parking lot, robbed her at gun point and ordered her to get into her own car. The victim appropriately refused to get in the car and fled on foot. The man also fled the scene with stolen property from the victim.
The suspect was described as a white male adult, early 20's, 5'10", slender build, strawberry blond hair, wearing a black hoodie over his head or an open faced stocking cap.
