Mugged On Campus - Univ. Of Minnesota

Hat tip to Spectator, who alerted me to this crime alert from the University of Minnesota Police: "robbery alert".

posted: may 2, 2006

On Sunday night, 4/30/2006, a University of Minnesota student had parked his car in Dinkytown and was walking toward Sanford Hall when he was approached by two juvenile male suspects. The suspects struck the victim on the head with a rock and took his wallet before fleeing the area on foot.

Victim was able to continue walking to Sanford Hall, where emergency medical personnel and police were called to assist him. Victim was transported to the hospital by paramedics due to the nature of his injuries.

Suspects are described as two young males. Suspect one is a mixed-race male, stocky build, between the ages of 15 and 25 years who was wearing a blue Minnesota Timberwolves jersey at the time of the robbery. Suspect two is described as a black male between the ages of 15 and 25 years with a lean build, a black sweatshirt and dark pants with white shoes.

University police are investigating the incident further, and request that anyone who may have information, or could be a witness, contact investigators via 612-624-COPS (2677)
Nice suspect descriptions. Apparently the thug's race is good information for the police, but not good enough for the crimefighters at the Red Star.

Have I mentioned that Minneapolis violent crime is out of control?
