Around Campus

Forced Robbery
4/5 2300 Block G Street
Three individuals were robbed at gunpoint at about 3:45 a.m. as they walked north on 23rd Street. They were approached by a black male, approximately 25 years old, 5 feet 10 inches, weighing 165 pounds and wearing a black leather jacket, black hat, gray sweat pants and black shoes. One of the three victims turned over $14. None of the victims was harmed. Metropolitan Police arrived on the scene, and both departments are investigating the incident.

Referred to MPD


4/6 HOVA
A student reported receiving harassing phone calls starting at about 2:15 a.m. The calls were not of a sexual nature. The student tried to figure out who the caller was, but the person kept hanging up. UPD has not been able to trace these calls, as they are usually placed from an off-campus number.


Drug Law Violation

4/7 GW Emergency Room
An MPD officer reported that he had transported a GW female student to the emergency room. The MPD officer said that he had discovered the student when she fell out of a taxicab on Constitution Avenue and believed her to be intoxicated as well as under the influence of drugs. The student was also reported as being extremely agitated and combative.


4/7 Francis Scott Key Hall

A UPD officer smelled marijuana coming from a room. The officer knocked, and when the door was opened drug paraphernalia and drugs were in plain sight. The resident turned the drugs and paraphernalia over to the UPD officer.

Referred to SJS.



4/2 Old Main

A person reported that between Feb. 28 and March 15 his computer, monitor and keyboard had been stolen. The person initially thought that the computer had been taken out for repair. Once it became apparent that this was not the case, the person reported the theft to UPD.


Unlawful Assembly

4/4 Foggy Bottom Metro stop

A group that had been protesting at Metro stops around the city was cited by UPD as protesting without a permit at 21st and I streets. The students were protesting the use of tax dollars to support the Israeli army. The group was allowed to continue the protest as long as they did not block traffic or pedestrians.

No Further Action

False Police Report

4/1 Hall on Virginia Avenue

University Police say they received three fake calls during one shift. One call was made to an officer at HOVA, another to the Medical and Faculty Associates lobby. During one call, the caller claimed to be a UPD employee inside UPD headquarters. In all three cases, the caller said little more than “help me” before hanging up. Units responded to each of the phone calls and determined all three were false.
