A robbery has probably occurred on or around campus, near Capstone, the Horseshoe, Russell House, Swearingen, and/or the Greek Village.
Sometime yesterday, a victim was likely approached by a shady figure demanding money. The robber was assumed to be a male in dark clothing. The victim is presumably still waiting for the Unveristy of South Carolina Police Department’s assistance in the matter.
USCPD says they are working in conjunction with the Columbia Police Department on resolving the issue. News From Last Thursday reached out to Officer Daryl Williams about the incident, only to receive shrugs and puzzled looks in response.
We also contacted CarolinaAlert about the potential robbery, which responded with, “This is a TEST of the Carolina Alert Emergency Notification System. In an emergency, checkhttp://www.sc.edu/CarolinaAlert. This is only a TEST.”
