Crime Bulletin Issued on UK Campus After Strong-Arm Robbery Attempt

Robbery 01 300LEXINGTON, Ky (9/4/2013)— In the interest of safety, the University of Kentucky Police Department has issued the following Crime Bulletin for the UK community.

At approximately 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013, UK Police received a report regarding an attempted strong-arm robbery that occurred near the intersection of Virginia Avenue and Press Avenue. The female victim, a UK student, was approached by one unknown male subject.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, thin build, approximately 5’10” tall, wearing a white T-shirt with a graphic design and a baseball cap.
