Robbery at Tang Last Friday

On Friday July 31, an unidentified male assaulted and robbed a woman in the laundry room of Tang Hall, the MIT Police said in a crime bulletin distributed Monday.

The victim said the suspect was a white male with a beard in his 30’s, the police said. At the time of the crime, he was wearing a baseball hat, green t-shirt with white lettering, tan shorts, and sneakers.

The suspect gained access to Tang Hall when a resident opened the door to exit the building, the police said. He struck the victim and demanded that she give him all of her expensive things. The suspect stole her laptop, cell phone, and cash.

To prevent such incidents, the police offer dorm safety suggestions; See http://web.mit.edu/cp/www/bulletins.htm.
