Announcements from Barnard and Columbia Public Safety confirm that yesterday at 2:10 pm, two students were robbed at gunpoint by an unknown male in Morningside Park. In broad daylight, people, midafternoon, almost tea time. Morningside Park may look like a pretty park full of adorable cats, but apparently it’s also a hotbed of crime. No longer safe in pairs, all students must now travel in posses of four or more. These are dark times… and by dark we mean totally frickin’ visible.
Public Safety requests that any information as to the identity of the robber be relayed to the 26 Pct Detective Squad at (212) 678-1351.
