An unidentified male approached two victims in the College and South Williams Street area at 2 a.m. Sept. 8 and demanded their property, according to a UVM crime advisory report.
“No weapons were displayed and no one was injured,” the report stated.
The Burlington Police Department is actively investigating this incident by searching for the suspect, described as white with a thin build, approximately 5-foot-6-inches and wearing a baggy black sweatshirt.
UVM police take the opportunity to encourage students to stay safe by traveling in groups, stay in well-lit areas and always be aware of their surroundings.
With this being the fourth crime report in two weeks, some students, like first-year Nina Ferrari, have found the news kind of interesting.
“I have always been told Burlington is a safe place,” Ferrari said. “But I am not too worried.”
Burlington police request that if anyone has information on this case, please call 658-2700.
