Two stabbings, armed robbery near campus

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) issued warnings to the campus community this month about three reports of serious crimes near the University. Police are looking for suspects in two attempted murders—July 15 in the alley of the 600 block of Church Street and July 13 in the Maynard Street city parking structure.

Both victims were stabbed with a knife and sustained non life-threatening injuries. Additionally, a third victim told Ann Arbor Police July 14 that he had been robbed at gunpoint near Cambridge and Lincoln streets.

The incidents reportedly occurred between midnight and 3 a.m. on three consecutive nights.

Descriptions of the perpetrators are listed on the DPS Web site ( Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call the Ann Arbor Police Department at 994-2852 or 994-2397 or their tip line at 996-3199.

Shoe stolen during fight

A 13-year-old Ann Arbor boy told campus police officers that his new tennis shoe had been taken by two other youths during a June 23 fight near Ingalls Mall. The action occurred near Ann Arbor Summer Festival activities. An Ann Arbor police officer in the area spotted a suspect matching the victim's description and caught him after a brief foot chase. The shoe later was recovered nearby. All three juveniles were turned over to their parents.

Papers burned on kiosk

Fliers posted on a utility kiosk on the East University plaza near West Hall were found burning June 3 around midnight. A DPS officer and personnel from the Ann Arbor Fire Department extinguished the blaze. No other damage was reported and no suspects have been identified.
