To the Yale Community:   

I write to let you know that an attempted robbery occurred this morning at Elm and High Streets at approximately 3:00 AM (Click here to view the incident's location).                

The victim, who is not a member of the Yale community, was walking alone when she was approached by a female who displayed a knife and attempted to rob her of cash and a backpack.  No injuries were reported and the New Haven Police are investigating.

If you have any information about this incident or should observe any suspicious activity, please call the Yale Police at 203-432-4400 or text your anonymous tip to 67283; begin the stream with yaletip.   

As a general reminder, it is important to be aware of your surroundings at all times, and to walk or jog with others when possible, in well-populated and well-lit areas. Avoid displaying valuables, including cash and portable electronic devices. It is also a good idea to note the location of emergency Blue Phones along your route. Make use of security services, including shuttle services and door-to-door rides at night, by calling 203-432-9255.    

The Yale Police also provide services and information for victims of crimes, which you may access by calling 203-432-4400.
