Officers from the Department of Public Safety (DPS) continue
to look for a man in connection with at least one unarmed robbery.
DPS issued a crime alert Oct. 30 after two West Quad residents filed
reports with DPS. In one incident, the suspect was confronted by
a resident about 9 p.m. after she reportedly noticed him leaving
a residentŐs room with a wallet. The suspect returned the wallet
without incident. Minutes before, the suspect reportedly approached
another resident and intimidated him into giving him money. The
suspect is described as a Black male in his mid-30s, 5 feet 10 inches
tall, 240 pounds, with a medium complexion, unshaven, and crooked
teeth. He was seen wearing a black cap, red work coat, green pants
and black work boots.
The description is similar to those given in connection with a
theft from South Quad Nov. 1. In that incident, a man reportedly
approached the resident and asked for donations for a homeless shelter.
He also asked to use the telephone. While he was on the phone, the
resident noticed the man looking through a wallet. After the man
left, the owner of the wallet discovered that $135 was missing.
Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call
DPS immediately at (734) 763-1131. Residents are strongly encouraged
to keep their rooms locked at all times.
