November 2011 Campus Crime Summary:
ROBBERY: One Attempted Robbery Not Armed was reported in November 2011. That incident occurred on November 18, 2011 at approximately 2:50pm, when an 18 year old male student reported he was the victim of an attempted Robbery Not Armed while walking on Gullen Mall. The student stated he was walking on Gullen Mall, south of the Student Center Building, listening to music via ear phones, when two males, (described below) suddenly came up behind him and attempted to grab his iPhone from his hand. All three scuffled briefly. The two offenders were not successful and they fled empty handled. The student walked back to his dorm room and called WSUPD. A search of the area for the two subjects was not successful.
Description: #1: Black Male, 16-20 years old, medium brown complexion, wearing a dark blue hoodie, grey and blue “Prada” brand gym shoes and khaki colored “True Religion” brand jeans.
#2: Black Male, 16-20 years old, medium brown complexion, wearing a dark blue hoodie and blue jeans with an unknown pattern of the back. Nothing further.
A near campus Armed Robbery incident was reported on November 2, 2011 at Merrick and Commonwealth (in the neighborhood west of the Matthaei athletic complex). There, a 20 year old male student reported that at 12:15pm he was walking to his car when he noticed four subjects hanging around on the corner. As he was unlocking his car door, all four subjects approached him. One subject produced a handgun and stated, “Give me what you got.” The victim surrendered his cell phone, a pack of cigarettes and $20.00 in cash. One subject then struck the victim on the jaw and ordered him to leave. The victim got into his car and drove away. The four offenders fled in an unknown direction. The student drove to his Downriver area home where he called WSUPD.
