From KTVZ.COM News Sources

Bend police are looking for three men deemed “armed and dangerous” after a holdup early Tuesday at a SE Third Street motel that left two of the three victims with minor injuries.

Sgt. Devin Lewis said the men, later identified as Keith August Wayne Jones, 25; Eric Ian Monfort, 33; and a third, unidentified man aged 20 to 30 forced entry around 12:15 a.m. to Room 21 at the Holiday Motel, 880 SE Third St., and robbed the victims at gun and knifepoint.

There were two men and a woman, all in their 20s, there at the time. The two male victims received minor injuries but the female was unhurt, Lewis said, adding that the suspects were known by two of the victims.

Jones was described as 5-foot-6, with a skinny build, brown hair and brown eyes. Monfort is about 6 feet, with a medium build, blonde hair and blue eyes. The third suspect is a white male adult, 20 to 30 years old, about 6 feet tall, with a heavy build, brown hair, brown eyes and a goatee, Lewis said.

All three suspects are still at large and are believed to be armed and dangerous, Lewis said. Anyone who sees the men are warned not to approach them but instead to call 911.

The men face likely charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, second-degree assault, second-degree theft and unlawful use of a weapon.
