ROGUE RIVER, Ore. — Rogue River Police confirm that they have arrested the man who allegedly threatened a gas station attendant with a gun before stealing a truck on Thursday morning.
According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, a man was dropped off at the Chevron station on Depot Street in Rogue River around 9 a.m. He was holding a gas can, and asked the attendant if he could fill it with gas for free. The attendant refused, and the man flew into a rage.
As the argument escalated, the attendant went inside of the gas station and locked the door. The other man produced a gun and began making threats, police said.
While the attendant called 911, the other man began hitting the glass on the gas station windows, breaking several.
"Initially, it was reported the suspect was shooting the windows out," the Sheriff's Office said.
Rogue River Police said that the suspect noticed that the attendant's keys were in his Chevrolet pickup truck, allowing the man to get in and steal the vehicle, driving away.
Deputies from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office and Oregon State Police troopers soon arrived in the area, pulling the suspect over on Foothill Boulevard and taking him into custody. An officer from Rogue River Police reportedly recovered a handgun from inside the truck.
The suspect was later identified as 53-year-old Abel Rubio-Camacho. His address is unknown, but the Sheriff's Office says that he is from the Medford area. He is being held at the Jackson County Jail on charges of Robbery First Degree, Unauthorized Use Motor Vehicle, Menacing, and Criminal Mischief Third Degree. His initial bail is $115,000.
