Published: Sep 3, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 3, 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, UK student, was approached by one unknown male subject. The subject reportedly demanded of the victim to borrow and then hand over their cell phone and was pushed by the subject when the victim did not comply. 

 

The suspect fled the scene and was last seen running east toward campus on Virginia Avenue before jumping into the passenger side of a vehicle described as a White Chevrolet Tahoe. 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.
