According to the email, at 2:40 a.m. UAPD responded to a reported robbery on Colonial Drive near Bryant-Denny Stadium.
“The suspect approached the victim demanding money, threatening them with a boxcutter,” the email read. “The suspect was described as a male with dark complexion, possibly in his early 40s, wearing a blue shirt and gray pants. The victim was not injured.”
Anyone with additional information about the robbery is asked to report it to UAPD at 348-5454 or Crime Stoppers at 752-7867(STOP).
The email went on to provide students and community members with the following safety considerations:
