To the Yale Community,

I write to let you know that an attempted robbery occurred last evening in the archway between Payne Whitney Gym and Ray Tompkins House at approximately 11:00 PM. The victim, who is a  Yale undergraduate, was walking  through the archway when he was approached by a male who assaulted him, grabbed his backpack, went  through it and fled the area without taking anything.. Yale police are investigating.

If you have any information about this incident or should observe the vehicle described above, 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.
