At 2:35 this morning, a University student’s purse was snatched as she was walking home south of Central Campus.

The victim told the Ann Arbor Police that an unknown man approached her as she was walking near Oakland Avenue and South Forest Avenue.

“She was going into her house and the guy came up and snatched her purse,” said Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Richard Kinsey.

The man then jumped into a dark-colored SUV and fled the scene.

The suspect did not appear to be armed.

Ann Arbor Police have no suspects at this time and the incident is under investigation.

The Department of Public Safety issued a crime alert shortly after the incident, asking anyone with information to call 734-763-1131.

In the crime alert, DPS reminded students to be aware of their surroundings, walk with a friend whenever possible and to have their keys in hand before they reach their vehicle or residence.
