On Thursday, Oct. 20, at approximately 9 p.m., UIC Police responded to an activated Startel emergency phone. A UIC student reported that he had been the victim of a strong-armed robbery near 1021 Vernon Park Place. Two males approached the student from behind, hit him in the face, and took his phone. The offenders fled westbound on Vernon Park Place. The first offender is described as a black male, approximately 16-18 years old, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt. The second offender is described as a black male, approximately 16-18 years old, wearing gray sweatpants. The victim was not seriously injured and refused medical treatment.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Chicago Police Department at 311.
The Chicago Police Department will lead the investigation, with assistance from the UIC Police/CPD Joint Robbery Task Force.

UIC Police offer the following security tips:
--Be aware of your surroundings. Use all your senses to be alert for danger, and when walking alone, don't wear headphones or earbuds.
