NBC Covers Armed Robbery At Wes
Neglects to mention race, correct height of suspect–possibly collapses the difference between duct and electrical tape. As they do.
However, the real story here is that the victims are safe, and P-Safe displayed exemplary discretion in their succinct, yet informative campus-wide alert:
“Public Safety would like to alert the community that on Saturday 4/7/12 at 7:00pm a student reported being robbed in their room. The student stated that while he and another student were in the room they let a non-student who was known to them into the room. The non-student then displayed a handgun and detained the students leaving after he took a computer, cell phones and cash. The students were not injured.
The suspect is described as a heavy set Caucasian male, approximately 5′ 8″ tall, in his early 20′s wearing a black knit cap, grey hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, sneakers and carrying a backpack with red and black markings.
This incident is under investigation By Middletown Police and Public Safety. Anyone with any information is asked to call Middletown Police at 860-344-3200 or Public Safety at 860-685-2345“
In fact, the above alert just saved us a blog summary of the incident…
