The campus community should be aware of a suspect related to a recent number of phone thefts. The incidents involve a person in a vehicle, described as a silver SUV, approaching members of the community with their phone in-hand and asking for directions or other questions. When contact is made, the suspect is snatching the victim’s phone and driving off. One incident has involved an implied weapon.
MUPD encourages all members of the Marquette community to be aware of your surroundings at all times and to not walk with your phone out. Also, do not approach a vehicle with which you are not familiar. If you observe any suspicious behavior or fear for your safety at any time, contact MUPD at (414) 288-1911 or through one of the more than 450 blue light phones on and near campus.
