AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

The Auburn Police Division wants to remind Auburn University students to stay alert after a robbery was reported near one of the residence halls, according to an alert sent by the campus safety and security department.

According to police, a robbery was reported around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday in the area of South Donahue Residence Hall. The female victim says he was approached by a male suspect wearing all black who stole her wallet and backpack. The victim was injured and no weapons were seen or used, police say.

The victim described the suspect as having a slender build and about 5’9” or 5’10”.  He was last seen running away from South Donahue Residence Hall toward Leach Science Center, police say.

Police would like to remind residents to:

  • Stay alert to your surroundings and walk with friends, especially at night.
  • Use available means of transportation such as the Night Security Shuttle (available on campus at 334-844-7400 from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m. while classes are in session), a local taxi service, or Uber.
  • Trust your instincts. If you do not feel comfortable in a place or situation, leave.
  • If you see suspicious activity or a person behaving suspiciously, notify police at 911 (emergencies or crimes in progress), 334-501-3100 (non-emergencies) or 334-246-1391 (tip line – text or call).

Anyone with information about the incident should notify the Auburn Police Division using the tip line.
