Man Robs Downtown Off the Waffle

4-19 off the waffle robberyEUGENE, Ore. — Police responded to a robbery at Off The Waffle just before 8:00 p.m. Friday night. Police said a man walked up to the counter with a note and demanded money. He also said he had a gun.

A worker handed the man money out of the cash register. He then took off on foot and headed southbound on Willamette Street.

Police said they’re still looking for the suspect, but are confident he’ll get caught. “This is a high risk type of a crime for somebody with pretty low yield. So eventually people usually do get caught,” said Melinda McLaughlin, Eugene Police Department spokesperson.

The man is described as a white man in his thirties who’s around 180 pounds with brown facial hair. He was last seen wearing a long sleeve black shirt and sweatpants. He was also wearing a Portland Trailblazers hat.

Anyone who knows the suspect or saw anything Friday night is asked to call the Eugene Police Department.
