The below information was reported to the Department of Public Safety today. Just a safety awareness reminder, please be aware of your surroundings as you travel to and from campus.

Incident: Off-campus Robbery

Date: 11/10/2015

Suspect’s Status: At Large

Incident Description:    On 11/10/2015, at approximately 0130 hours, the victim stated that she was walking west on Franklin Street, and an unknown Black Male confronted her at the entrance to the parking lot of 224 Franklin Street. She stated that the offender pointed a pistol at her head, grabbed her and brought her to the back parking lot. The suspect hit her in the head with the pistol and took her cell phone and credit card. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Suspect Description:    Black male wearing all black clothing and a camouflage ski mask.

Important Message: It is important to note that the victim/survivor is never the cause of the criminal offense. The College does not tolerate this behavior.

Tips: Use well-lit routes; avoid dark vacant areas and those not frequented by other people. Avoid walking alone at night. Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Avoid distractions like talking on your cell phone. Use ATMs during the day. If you must use an ATM at night, do not do so alone. Avoid ATMs that are not clearly visible from the street. Be aware of people loitering in areas around ATMs, vehicles and residences.

If you observe unusual activity, try to remember details as best you can (for example, what a person was wearing or any other identifiers like scars, tattoos or shoes). As stated above, always be aware of your surroundings, avoid walking alone at night and notify Law Enforcement immediately if you observe potentially dangerous situations or individuals.

Many College provide escorts on-campus and the FREE Shuttle Services

Get Involved and Make a Difference: The College encourages the prompt reporting of all crimes: on-campus, contact Public Safety; and off-campus, local police (911). Often times, students are present when a crime is about to happen, and bystander intervention is one method students may use to help prevent a crime from happening. Learn how to develop this skill and safely intervene.
