University Police are advising students to travel in pairs, lock valuables in vehicles and stay on lighted paths after a robbery occurred in the parking lot west of the Marriott Library on Saturday at 2:10 p.m. The university alerted campus of the incident at 3:42 p.m.

The suspects targeted the victim in the southwest end of the lot. A slender white male with a blonde buzzcut and no facial hair — estimated to be about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and in his mid-20s — approached the victim. According to UPD Chief Dale Brophy, the man took the victim’s laptop after a physical altercation. The victim received minor scrapes, but did not need medical treatment. Brophy said the suspect did not use a weapon in the attack.

There is no description for the second suspect, who was waiting in a getaway car. The vehicle is described as a “newer Civic or Mazda 3 style” dark gray four-door sedan.
