Alleged Attempted Robbery Results in Arrests

Written by

Last night, Bwog received a tip that there appeared to be some people who were arrested on College Walk. Spec now reports that two children attempted to rob a 19-year-old student outside Butler a little after 8:30 p.m., and these children were then arrested by NYPD.

When asked for a statement last night, Public Safety informed Bwog that there was “activity on College Walk, but we have no comment on the situation.”

Stay tuned for updates. If you have any pertinent information, please let us know at [email protected].

  1. Yeesh.

  2. I Knew It

    Financial Aid is now using child labor.

  3. Why did facilities  

    ...close the gates next to Butler leading to 114th?

    I swear, if a kid tries to rob me, I will straight out punch him in his face, regardless of his age.

    this whole thing is ridiculous.

  7. L.L.

    I never did trust those toddlers on college walk..."laughing" in their little "sweaters"...

  8. 8 year old aggressor

    "The student requested anonymity because one of the aggressors threatened the students."
    Translation: the student is a pussy.

  9. I would

    imagine that these assailants have a remarkably dysfunctional family life. I'm sure that there are quite a few 11 year old robbers and would-be robbers out there, although not many, but the concept of an 8 year old robber is almost inconceivable. Likewise, I'm sure there are quite a few boys that would engage in this type of activity, although not many, but I suspect the number of girls that would engage in it is smaller by several orders of magnitude. Funny as the story is, something is quite wrong here.

    if this were during the school year, then it would be shocking. A sense of safety on campus is absolutely necessary. We should be thankful that it takes the irrational motivations of two children to attempt a robbery on our campus. I am glad that the students were not injured, and I pleased to see the thieves' easy apprehension.

    According the ever-veritable [email protected], some punk tried to steal a student's iPhone...said student chased the guy down and wrestled his phone back.

    Public Safety is USELESS. Paper-lion rubber guns.

    • yeah  

      I saw it happen. It was really crazy, the kid was like 13 years old and clearly looking for a fight, but the student refused to hit him.

      All of this happened between 115th and 116th on Broadway....and public safety was NOWHERE to be found.

  12. Actually

    about eight weeks ago a girl got her iPhone stolen on 110th between Broadway and Amsterdam. The guy started to run east on 110th towards 1020 when I hit him in the chest and then choked him out. I had him on the ground and unconscious until Public Safety rolled up to the curb and just sat there for like 3 minutes. I mean I'm a white guy in a pea coat with a bunch of papers and a book on the corner of 110th and Amsterdam...what are the odds that I may be associated with CU in some way? Then add to this that I am choking a person on the ground and one would think they may investigate. One of the girls in the group started hitting me saying "stop you're hurting him" in a typical CU "don't blame the person, blame the historical narrative that brought him to this point" way. I eventually let him up as the Public Safety officers just sat there in their SUV looking at the whole scene. He staggered down Amsterdam to 109 and disappeared. Later after I left 1020 some NYPD officers were outside and the Public Safety guys pointed to me and said I was the one who took the assailant down. The cops asked me what happened and when they found out that Public Safety just sat in their vehicle for several minutes while I had the guy on the ground they indicated disgust and that this was apparently par for the course in regards to Public Safety's incompetence. The reason I write this is that I'm sure that Bollinger and the rest of the Low bureaucracy never hear of Public Safety's failings and this should really stop. These lazy cowards need to start doing their damn jobs instead of making sure no one is drinking underage or sitting on the piers.

  13. wow

    good job, public safety.

    Bwog, investigate public safety incompetence! Confirm the above comment or something.

    This sort of thing would NEVER happen at Brown-- besides us students I don't think I've ever seen human life in Providence.
