Masked man robs Medford deli on West McAndrews Avenue

Police are searching for a man who robbed a Medford deli at gunpoint late Friday.

The suspect entered Bunk's Deli at 915 W. McAndrews Road just before 11 p.m. and brandished a handgun, Medford police said in a news release.

The man demanded cash from the employees and then fled the scene and was last seen heading southwest, officials said.

Officers were on the scene within minutes and established a perimeter around the area hoping to capture the man before he escaped the neighborhood.

After an extensive search, in which a tracking dog was used, officers were unable to locate the man.

Witnesses described the suspect as having a stocky build and might have been in his late 20s.

He was wearing a black or dark blue stocking cap, gray sweat pants and was carrying a dark-colored bag. The suspect's face was covered by a black or dark blue bandana at the time of the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Medford police Detective Diane Sandler at 541-774-2247.
