Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, April 2, 2019
Two men stole a cell phone from a victim and struck the victim multiple times late Sunday night according to an email sent to the Notre Dame community from the Notre Dame Police Department on Monday.
The robbery occurred on St. Vincent Street — two blocks south of Notre Dame’s campus. The suspects were described as being in their late teens to early 20s.
“One suspect was described as a black man, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and a fade haircut,” NDPD said in the email. “The second suspect was described as a white or Hispanic man, approximately 5 feet 8 [inches], wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt with the hood up or a hat on and longer hair.”
The victim sustained minor injuries, and NDPD is currently investigating the incident with the South Bend Police Department.
If anyone has any information regarding this crime, contact the South Bend police at 574-235-9263, the report said.
The email reminded students to use safe transportation options and travel in groups in order to reduce the risk of robbery or assault.
