Woman robbed at gunpoint

Authorities on Friday were searching for a man who robbed a Harbor woman at gunpoint while she was walking on West Benham Lane at 6:20 a.m.

At the same time authorities in Curry and Del Norte counties were searching for two men, one of them possibly the robbery suspect, who led sheriff deputies on a high-speed chase south on Highway 101 into California at 10:30 a.m. 

The suspects, who ditched the vehicle near Fort Dick and fled into a brushy area near Kellogg Beach, remained at large as of Friday evening. 

The robbery victim knew the suspect, identifying him as Johnnie Roberson 31, of Brookings, according to Curry County Sheriff John Ward.

Curry County will make Oregon Coast history next week when it unveils its newest addition, a 60-mile bike path that runs through the north part of the county.

The Wild Rivers Coast Tourism Collaborative will host a ribbon-cutting at 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 16, at Port Orford’s Battle Rock Park to honor the Oregon Coast’s first designated scenic bikeway — a project several years in the works for local tourism entities.

The bike path begins at Battle Rock Park in Port Orford, then heads east along the Elk River. Turning around at Butler Bar Campground, the path heads back to Highway 101 and then to Cape Blanco State Park, before ending at the Port Orford Heads State Park.
