Today's crime alert
At the little subway sandwich shop (one that's not part of the chain) across the street from campus, tucked behind the 7-Eleven, right beside an alley and not 50 yards from luxury condominiums, a student sat outside on the patio at sunset on a summer evening, eating a sandwich.
Suddenly he was confronted by a man who pointed a gun at the student's head and demanded his wallet and cellphone. The student turned over the stuff and sat frozen for a moment as the assailant limped away down the alley. The robber had a limp. That's in the official description on the alert posted all over campus on Friday morning.
This happened on a heavily trafficked block, within sight of the the busiest street on the busiest side of the campus.
