Oregon State Police (OSP) is asking for the public's help to identify three male subjects who reportedly assaulted and robbed a Shady Cove man along Highway 62 north of Eagle Point early Monday morning.
On April 2, 2012 at approximately 1:30 a.m., a 28 year-old man was traveling northbound on Highway 62 when his vehicle was overtaken by an older "Jeep style" vehicle. After the driver of the suspect vehicle repeatedly pulled in front of the victim's vehicle and slowed down, the victim pulled to the side of the road near the Butte Falls Highway cut-off at milepost 14.
The suspect vehicle stopped near the victim's vehicle and three unidentified adult males got out and confronted the victim. As an altercation ensued, the three male suspects reportedly assaulted the victim and robbed him of an undisclosed amount of cash. The victim was later transported by a family member to a local hospital where he was treated for multiple fractures and released.

The three unidentified suspects are described as being in their mid 20's to early 30's. Suspect #1 is approximately 6' 3" tall with a large build. Suspect #2 is approximately 6' 5" tall with a thin build. Suspect #3 was only described as being average height and weight. As a result of the altercation, the three suspects may have bruises or injuries to their faces or necks.
The suspect vehicle was described as dark maroon or dark purple, older model SUV, possibly a Jeep. The vehicle has oxidized paint, most notably around the doors and side windows, and displayed an Oregon license plate that may begin with the number "2".
OSP Criminal Investigation Division is seeking information that will assist in identifying the three suspects involved in this incident. Anyone with information should contact Detective Bryan Scott at (541) 618-7957 or Sergeant Jeff Fitzgerald at (541) 618-7952.
