In Compliance with the "Timely Warning" provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 the University Police is giving notice of the following reported incident:


8/24/2015

At approx. 9:19pm, Monday, August 24, 2015, an unknown male approached a 20-year old WSU student, as he was walking west on the sidewalk on the south side of 21st St. North. He was headed from Koch Arena to the parking lot northeast of Cessna Stadium.

The suspect approached the student demanding that the student give him his wallet. As the student was reaching for his wallet, the suspect stated that he was serious and swung at the student with his fist, striking the student in his left hand as the student attempted to block the swing. The student threw his wallet on the ground and ran to his car and left the area. The suspect left in an unknown direction on foot.

There was no weapon seen or indicated. The student was not injured and the wallet has not been recovered at this time.

Officers from the University Police Department responded to the call of the incident. The UPD is continuing to investigate the crime.

If you have information which may help solve this crime, please contact the UPD Detective Section, 978-3450.

This crime happened adjacent to a busy street, just east of the intersection of 21st Street North and Hillside.  Although crimes like this happen most often in secluded areas away from witnesses, this is a reminder that crime can occur at any place and at any time.  Walking in groups, carrying electronic devices hidden in book bags or underneath outer clothing, and remaining alert and observant of your immediate environment may help reduce risk of being victimized by an offender.  WSU students, staff and faculty members may program their mobile telephones for one-touch dialing to the UPD, 316-978-3450, so that crimes can be reported to Police immediately.
