TIMELY NOTICE BULLETIN

Robbery  

April 11, 2018

 

In compliance with the “Timely Notice” provision of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 Augsburg University Department of Public Safety is giving notice of a concerning incident that occurred inside Anderson Hall on the Minneapolis Campus.

REPORTED OFFENSE:  Robbery

Today, 4/11/2018, DPS received a report that on Monday, April 9, 2018 around 11:30 pm, a robbery occurred inside an Anderson Hall apartment.  A student was attempting to sell clothing online and had the potential buyers meet at their apartment. The victim met 2 males at the North entrance to Anderson Hall and escorted them to their room.  When the clothing item was shown to the potential buyers they hit the victim in the head and pointed a handgun at them. The suspects then took the clothing item and ran out the North entrance of Anderson Hall.  The suspects then got into a dark colored 4 door sedan parked on 21st Ave S (north of 7th St) and left Northbound on 21st Ave S.

SAFETY TIPS:

When selling anything online:

  • DO NOT meet at your residence or the buyer’s residence; choose a neutral location in a public area that is well lit.
  • If possible, bring a friend with you to the sale; if not, make sure to let someone know where the meeting is taking place, when you are leaving, and when you expect to be back.

STATUS:  We believe this to be an isolated incident, and it remains under investigation by the Minneapolis Police Department and the Augsburg College Department of Public Safety. Anyone who may have information regarding this incident is urged to contact MPD or Augsburg DPS at 612-330-1717.

Please report any and all concerns that may impact our campus community. If You See Something – Say Something (1717). We also encourage you to utilize the resources available at our website: publicsafety@augsburg.edu
