(SCIO, Ore. ) - The Linn County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating two men wanted in connection with a robbery in Scio, Oregon.
Linn County Sheriff Bruce Riley says deputies received a call on July 2 from 21-year-old Nickolaus Thomas Blair of Scio, saying he had just been robbed at knife point after walking his dog along the banks of Thomas Creek.
When Blair arrived back at his vehicle, there was a 90's dark green Honda Civic with paint peeling on the trunk, parked along the roadway. Blair said the doors of the Honda Civic were open and two adult males were inside the vehicle. Blair told deputies as he walked past the green Honda to his vehicle, he heard the two males approaching him.
Blair then turned around and one male grabbed him by the throat and held a knife to him, while telling him to unlock the door to his vehicle. Blair told deputies he unlocked his vehicle door while one male kept him at knife point and the other male entered his vehicle, taking Blair's wallet, a Glock 23 .40 caliber handgun, and his iPhone 4S.
Blair told deputies the two males fled the area in the dark green Honda Civic, last seen driving towards Jefferson on Densmore Road. Blair was uninjured during this incident.
The only suspect information the deputies were able to obtain was there were two adult Hispanic males who were described by Blair as short. One Hispanic male was wearing a white T-Shirt and blue jeans and the second Hispanic male was wearing a gray tank top with blue jeans.
This investigation is currently ongoing and anyone with information regarding this robbery is asked to contact Detective Lieutenant Bob Clark at (541) 967-3950.
