An alleged armed robbery occurred on campus at approximately 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 17. The suspects are described as “three black males in their 20s to early 30s … wearing black, red and white hooded shirts” according to the campus safety notice sent out via the Gov Says email system.

The incident allegedly occurred near Drane Street and the Memorial Health Building. According to the campus safety notice, the suspects “flagged down the victim” then “one of the suspects brandished a knife, while another demanded money from the victim.” The suspects then fled on foot in the direction of the “Honors Commons/Subway area” according to the safety notice.

“If you don’t know the person calling you over … walk away,” said Lt. Carlton Little, campus police officer. He also advised that the sooner someone contacts the police about a crime, the sooner that crime can be solved.

According to Little, there are no leads and the investigation is still ongoing.
