Public Safety Advisory

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, around 2:20 p.m., a UIC student was the victim of a robbery near 700 S. Halsted Street. The victim was approached by a male offender who demanded money. The offender then demanded that the victim take him to an ATM to withdraw money, but the victim refused. The victim pulled a small amount of cash from his wallet ($7) which the offender took before pushing the victim to the ground and fleeing eastbound toward campus. The victim was not injured during the incident. The offender is described as a black male, bald, 40-45 years old with a limp and wearing a gray jacket and carrying a bag and spray bottle. UIC Police will lead the investigation. Anyone with information should call (312) 996-2830.
