STATEMENT ON REPORTED ROBBERY:

At approximately 2:44 a.m., Sunday, March 7, officers from the University of Missouri Police Department responded to a report of a robbery that occurred near the northeast corner of Conley Avenue Garage. The male victim reported that between 2:30 a.m. and 2:40 a.m. two individuals robbed him at gun point, taking his wallet and cellular phone.

The suspects were described as two black males, 5’10” to 6’ tall, weighing 140 to 150 pounds, and wearing black masks covering the bottom half of their faces. One of the males was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt. The other male was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

After the males took the victim’s wallet and cellular phone, they ran north on Sixth Street toward Stewart Road, eventually turning west on Stewart Road. During this time a white sedan was observed driving at a high rate of speed south on Sixth Street turning onto Stewart Road. The victim did not observe the suspects get into the vehicle; however, he believed the individual(s) in the sedan may have been involved. (Note: directions in bold corrected 3/8/2010 at 0718)
