The Department of Public Safety issued a timely warning through email to the University community on Dec. 5 at 3:40 a.m. regarding an unarmed robbery incident.
The email details a robbery in which a male undergraduate student's headphones were stolen. The incident took place at around 2:20 a.m., approximately an hour before Public Safety's email was sent.
The victim reported that “he was walking West between Firestone Library and the Chapel when a male, approximately 6'2" to 6'5" in height, thin build, wearing a burgundy hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, light colored blue jeans, and white sneakers pushed him from behind.”
As a result, the student who reported the incident lost his grasp and dropped “his briefcase and headphones”, but was not injured.
The suspect “ran east across Washington Road and onto Williams Street” after taking the headphones.
Although Public Safety and Princeton Police Officers searched the area, they found no one matching the suspect's description, according to the email.
