Wesleyan students mugged twice in same day

Walk in groups and travel along well-lit paths, they say. And be aware of your surroundings, since two Wesleyan students have been mugged in the past 24 hours.

… on Monday 3/31/08 at approximately 10:45 PM a male student was near Dennison Terrace when he was approached by two individuals. As they passed him one of the individuals punched him knocking him to the ground. The individuals then demanded his backpack which they took and fled toward High St. The student did not suffer any injuries.

The first suspect was described as an African-American male, approximately 6′ 1″ black hooded sweatshirt, large build, the second suspect was described as a Caucasian or Hispanic male, approximately 5′ 9″ with a tan or gold hooded sweatshirt.

The method and description of the suspects sounds creepily similar to the mugging that occurred not 24 hours earlier:

… on Monday 3/31/08 at approximately 1:15 AM a male student was walking on William St. near High St. when he was approached by two individuals. As they passed him one of the individuals punched him knocking him to the ground. The individual then held him to the ground and demanded his wallet. The student told the individual that his wallet was in his backpack which they took after they dumped out books from it. The individuals then fled north on High St. The student received minor injuries and declined medical assistance.

The first suspect was described as an African-American male, approximately 5’ 10”, white sweatshirt, large build, in his mid 20’s, the second suspect was described as a Caucasian male, approximately 5’ 6” with a black hooded sweatshirt, thin build, in his mid 20’s.

Oh, and where/what is Dennison Terrace?

    9:55 i think you’re mistaken. it is actually a huge liability issue to post signs saying you have cameras up when you don’t.

    actually discipline is created by the understanding that surveillance exists, it is not uncommon for stores to have signs saying that they have cameras when they in fact don’t. people are less likely to commit crimes when they know (or think) there are cameras present, its about deterring crime, not catching criminals

    But hey! We don’t want cameras! Because, like, they’re a violation of our, like, rights, as students, yeah!

    Wow, really? Mugged in the middle of campus? Most other attacks seem to happen on the periphery, no?

    Yeah, not even Google maps knows what Dennison Terrace is.Unless they meant Denison Road, which is very far from Wesleyan. But that’s unlikely.

    They were both 3 inches different based on subjective estimations by the victims. It’s possible they are the same people, I wouldn’t write that off right away. Plus, the techniques (primitive as they are) are very similar as well. So who knows…
