The University’s Department of Public Safety issued a
crime alert this morning after a graduate student reported an
attempted armed robbery, DPS spokeswoman Diane Brown said.

  • The encounter occurred near Hubbard Road and Beale Avenue when
    the student was approached by two suspects at about 1 a.m.
    yesterday. Suspects were reported as two black men, about 18 to 20
    years old, both wearing short-sleeved shirts and gray ski
    masks.
  • One suspect brandished a knife about 7 inches long and demanded
    the victim’s wallet. The suspects threw down the wallet and
    did not take any money because it contained no U.S. currency, Brown
    said.
  • After throwing the wallet, the suspects reportedly ran away and
    got into a medium-sized yellow car and headed north on Beale
    Avenue.
