Alleged robbery reported on campus


MU Police asking for help locating assailants

The University of Missouri Police Department is asking for the assistance of the MU community in identifying three individuals from an alleged strong-armed robbery last weekend.

At approximately 2:10 a.m., Oct. 16, a subject who said three white males robbed him around 1:40 a.m. flagged officers down.

 The victim said the three white males approached him on the south side of the MU Natural Resources Building where they took his wallet and cellphone. No weapons were displayed during the robbery.

The first suspect is “college age” with a stocky build, approximately 5-feet and 8-inches tall to 5-feet and 10-inches tall, clean-shaven, wearing a white shirt, a silver necklace with a medallion — possibly a cross — a silver watch on his left arm and he had short hair, which was dark, possibly brown.

The second suspect is “college age,” very thin, 5-feet and 8-inches tall, clean-shaven, wearing a black T-shirt and shorts and has shorts hair, possibly dark or brown. The only description of the third suspect is that he is a white male.

All three suspects were last seen running west on Rollins Street. No additional information is available at this time.

Anyone with any information is requested to call Sergeant Shawn Spalding at 573-864-8571, or CRIME STOPPERS at 573-875-8477.
