Attempted robbery on 114th St.
Public Safety is currently circulating another alert informing students of an attempted robbery that occurred last night on 114th St. between Broadway and Amsterdam—and it sounds eerily familiar to a previously reported incident.
At about 11:50 p.m., two students were walking on the north side of 114th towards Broadway, when one was assaulted by the suspect. The suspect threatened the victim, shoving her against a fence, and demanded she give up her iPhone. When the student said she didn’t have an iPhone, the suspect took off towards Amsterdam without taking any property.
More: The suspect can be seen on security tapes walking back and forth 114th before the crime. Just a few minutes before, he followed another student into Ruggles Hall, but left the building immediately.
Students are encouraged to contact the 26 Pct Detective Unit at 212-678-1351 if you have any further information about this crime. If you observe this person on the street, call the police immediately by dialing 911.
