MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police responded to an incomplete 911 call from Peach Street Market last night, but the incident was over by the time they arrived. A second call to dispatch while units were inbound reported that there had been an attempted robbery, but the suspect had fled on foot.

Police say that the suspect entered the Market just before 10 p.m. last night—right as the store was about to close. He was hooded, with a red and white bandana covering the lower half of his face.

The suspect threatened a clerk behind the counter with a knife, demanding cash.  The clerk grabbed a phone and began calling 911, causing the suspect to leap over the counter and knock the phone out of the clerk's hands. The 911 call was disconnected.

The clerk was able to get around the knife-wielding suspect and run out the door of the Market, yelling for help. At this, the suspect also ran out, but then fled the scene. The would-be robber was unable to grab any cash or valuables before fleeing.

A description of the suspect follows:

-White adult male, fair-skinned, early 20s
-5'11" tall, skinny build, blue eyes
-Dark blue or black sweatshirt with long white drawstrings
-Blue jeans
-Red and white shoes
-Red and white, multicolored bandana

Medford Police say that this is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information should contact their Criminal Investigations Division at (541) 774-2230
