Woman Robbed on Princeton University Campus by Man Wearing Ski Mask

A woman reported to the Princeton University Department of Public Safety that she was robbed by a man wearing a ski mask on the Princeton University campus at about 9 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11. The woman was walking past Maclean House near Nassau Street and Elm Drive when a man wearing all black and a black ski mask approached her. He pushed her into bushes, grabbed her purse, took her wallet and cell phone out of the purse and fled. The woman was uninjured. The suspect is described as about 5’10” and was wearing black jeans, black gloves and black shoes.

A male undergraduate student reported to the Department of Public Safety that he was walking west on campus between Firestone Library and the Princeton University Chapel in Sunday, Dec. 5, at 2:20 a.m., when a man pushed him from behind. The student lost his balance, dropping his briefcase and headphones. The suspect took the headphones and ran east across Washington Road and onto Williams Street. The victim was not injured. The suspect is described as about 6’2″ to 6’5″ with a thin build. He was wearing a burgundy hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, light blue jeans, and white sneakers.

Call the Public Safety Department at (609) 258-1000 if you have information about the incidents.
