Police search for man

who groped girl in hotel

A man sneaked into a hotel room and groped a sleeping teenage girl before leaving through a window. He also stole some cash from an adjacent room, Eugene police said.

Detectives have turned to the public to help identify the culprit, a white man in his 30s who wore a black hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants.

The two rooms at LaQuinta Inn, 155 Day Island Road, were occupied by a woman and six teenage girls who were visiting Eugene to shop and see friends. They called police at 4:15 a.m. Monday to report the incident. The man fled the room when the girl awoke and screamed.

Police asked anyone with information to call Detective Jeff Roth at 682-5569.

Officials stick to plan

to poison Diamond Lake

ROSEBURG - The Umpqua National Forest will continue with plans to eradicate an infestation of tui chub by placing the chemical rotenone in Diamond Lake, officials said Wednesday.

The minnow-like fish have taken over the lake and are blamed for poor water quality that has closed the popular spot to summer swimming, wading and water-skiing in recent years.

Jim Caplan, the forest supervisor, approved the strategy in December after years of study.

The Roseburg-based Umpqua Watersheds, Eugene-based Cascadia Wildlands Project and the statewide Oregon Natural Resources Council filed an appeal with the U.S. Forest Service last month. The groups want the agency to remove chub by releasing predacious fish into the lake and using mechanical harvest methods.
