Gunman makes off with iPhones, cash

EUGENE, Ore. -- A man is still on the loose after police say he robbed the west Eugene Radio Shack at gunpoint Thursday morning.

Police officials said that a man armed with a gun entered the Radio Shack at W. 11th and Tyinn St. (near the west Eugene U.S. Post Office) nearly an hour after the store opened at 9 a.m. on Thursday.

The suspect brought out a gun and ordered the sole employee to give him the contents of the cash register before demanding that the clerk let him into the rear of the store, Eugene police said.

The clerk told police that the man stole a number of unopened iPhones before leaving the store.

By the time officers responded to the scene with a K-9 unit the man had already gotten away on foot.

Police describe the man as a black male in his 20's, around 5-foot, 8-inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing red shoes, black pants and a black hooded sweatshirt with "Everlast" written in white lettering across the front.

Eugene Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call 541-682-5147.
