Junction City, Ore. – On March 12, 2022, at about 2:24 AM the Junction City Police Department took a report of a residential burglary of an occupied residence where the suspect entered through an unlocked window, assaulted the resident, took some miscellaneous items, then fled in an unknown direction.
During this investigation over the past week it was learned that a similar incident that was never reported to police occurred on February 10th, 2022, also at about 2:00 AM. The circumstances in this case are nearly identical where a nearby residence had a subject enter through an unlocked door but created too much noise on entry, waking the occupants. Realizing they had been caught, the suspect immediately fled the residence and was never located.
The general description of the suspect obtained from both victims is: a white male in their 30’s, about 5’ 8” – 10”, 180 with a medium / average build wearing a black-colored hoodie and black/dark-colored baseball cap.
The differences between #1 and #2 are:
- The gator in #1 was described as red in color whereas the gator in #2 was black.
- #1 also
- was wearing red, white, and blue colored tennis shoes
- had brown-colored short hair, approximately 2-3 inches in length, and a brownish colored beard.
- was possibly had some unknown writing on the ball cap.
- was wearing grey sweatpants.
It should be noted the artist renderings in the attached flyer were obtained individually, and at separate times, from each of the victims based upon their independent recall. Based upon the physical descriptions provided by both victims the suspect may likely be the be same person from both incidents, however, we cannot rule out the possibility there are two (2) separate perpetrators coincidently operating with the same methods.
Anyone with information about the identity of this/these individual(s) is requested to contact Junction City PD at 541-998-1245.
