NDSP investigates purse theft

Observer Staff Report | Sunday, November 13, 2011

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) is investigating a purse snatching that occurred Thursday night in the D6 parking lot.

NDSP emailed students Friday to alert them of the incident.

The suspect approached the victim from behind and grabbed her purse, ran to a waiting vehicle and fled the area. The incident occurred around 10:15 p.m., according to the email.

NDSP asked anyone with information about the incident to call NDSP at 574-631-5555. To report a crime in progress, suspicious activity, fire or medical emergency, call that number from a cellular phone or dial 9-1-1 from any campus phone.

NDSP encouraged students to call SafeWalk when walking on campus after dark. A SafeWalk employee will meet the student and walk with him or her from any point on campus. The service is free and confidential.
