On March 25, 2017, at approximately 11:45 p.m., a strong-arm robbery occurred near the southwest corner of Regent Drive and Colorado Avenue. The suspect approached a male CU student in Parking Lot 437 just north of the Engineering Center and asked him for a cigarette. He also offered drugs to the victim, who declined both requests.

The suspect then pushed the man to the ground, causing him to drop his cell phone and wallet. The suspect stole both items and ran south to leave the area. The victim suffered minor injuries and reported the crime at the Police Department. 

The suspect appeared to be an approximately 26-year-old transient and is described as a 6-foot-3 white male with a red beard and thin build. He was wearing a gray beanie, black "bomber style" leather jacket, gray sweatpants with basketball shorts underneath and beige Timberland boots.

The University of Colorado Police Department is currently investigating this incident. Anyone with information regarding this crime should call CUPD  at 303-492-6666.
