Rogue River Police looking for bank robbery suspect


ROGUE RIVER, Ore. – Officers with the Rogue River Police Department are asking for the community’s help identifying a man in connection to a bank robbery on Monday.

According to the department, the suspect entered the Umpqua Bank on 121 Pine Street just after 4 p.m.

He is described as a 40 to 50-year-old white male wearing gray pants, a white long sleeve shirt, white Nike hat and black sunglasses. He also has tattoos on his left arm and had a band-aid on his right cheek.

According to Rogue River Police Chief, David Rash, a robbery like this is rare.

“I grabbed one of the officers who’s on the case, this is the first bank robbery since he’s worked here and he’s been here four years,” Rash said. “He grew up here, he thinks the last one he knows of was when he was in high school which was about 17 years ago. I just don’t think they happen here that often.”

There were no injuries reported. Police say anyone who sees or knows the suspect should not attempt to make contact but call 911 instead.

Anyone who can identify the suspect or has more information on the incident is asked to call the Rogue River Police Department.
