On May 4, 2014, at approximately 1:30 a.m., a male University of Arizona student was the victim of a highway robbery while walking in the area of East Enke and Campbell Avenue. The victim was approached by three males who exited a vehicle and robbed him of his personal property. A fourth male remained in the vehicle and drove the suspects away. The three male suspects are described as Hispanic, in their 20’s, 5’8” to 5’9” tall weighing 130 to 140 pounds. The suspects were last seen driving away in an unknown direction in a dark blue or black 1990’s Chevrolet Suburban. No weapons were seen or implied during the incident. Anyone with information about this incident is requested to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME. This is an ongoing investigation and additional information may follow.
The University of Arizona Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind the community of the following Safety Tips:
1. Remain alert and aware of your surroundings and the people in your vicinity at all times.
2. Save important phones calls for a later time. Talking on cell phones or using other electronic devices when walking, biking, or driving are distractions and divert your attention away from your surroundings.
3. At night, travel in well-lighted areas. Avoid “shortcuts” through dark or deserted areas. Use the buddy system and travel with a group.
4. Utilize ASUA Safe Ride for a free way to travel between UA buildings and lots at night. Call: 520-621-SAFE.
5. If you feel threatened or suspect you are being followed, walk toward well-lighted areas where there are people. Call 9-1-1 immediately!
Emergency blue light phones give you direct access to UAPD with the push of a button. Know where they are located at all times.
