A UC Berkeley affiliate was allegedly robbed of his cell phone on the western part of campus Friday night.
Around 7 p.m., the 21-year-old affiliate was talking on his cell phone while walking westbound on the Grinnell Pathway. As the victim passed the loading dock of the Life Sciences Addition, he passed two men who began to follow him.
One suspect came up alongside the victim and allegedly pushed him to the ground, according to a UCPD crime alert. The first suspect allegedly took the victim’s cell phone before fleeing west on the pathway, and the second suspect allegedly lingered momentarily before also fleeing after the first suspect, according to the alert. The victim was not injured during the encounter and reported the incident to UCPD approximately 20 minutes later.
Below is the UCPD Crime Alert description of the suspects:
Suspect #1 – A Black male in his mid 20s, 6’00” in height, approximately
190 lbs., with black hair, wearing a baseball cap, dark jacket and baggy
Suspect #2 – A Black male, 20 years of age, 6’02” in height, approximately
180 lbs., wearing a baseball cap, short sleeve polo shirt with white and
pink horizontal stripes and a black backpack.
