A man used an airsoft pistol to rob an adult shop Sunday, fleeing the store with about $60, according to Eugene police and the shop’s manager.
Curtis Christianson, manager of Fantasy Land Adult Store, at 2727 Willamette Street, said a man wearing a long, black trench coat showed him the air pistol and said, “I’m not playing around,” before asking him for the money from the register at about 11:45 a.m.
The man ran out of the store with $60 from the register, Christianson said, and ditched the pistol in a nearby alley.
Christianson said he didn’t know the gun was only an airsoft pistol, which looks similar to a real gun but shoots small pellets that usually don’t break the skin, but he wasn’t going to take any risks.
Police said the suspect is a white male, about 5-foot-9 with a shaved head and a reddish-colored goatee. He was last seen wearing a green shirt with blue jeans.
Caitie McCurdy, an ad designer with the Emerald, witnessed the robbery from inside the store, but she didn’t realize what was happening at first, she said.
“I heard the cash register open and I couldn’t hear them talking, so I thought there might be something going on,” McCurdy said. “Then I saw he was near the door and just ran out. That’s when I knew he had stolen something.”
McCurdy said she was buying items for the Emerald’s upcoming sex and dating supplement cover
