Police are trying to track down four people who robbed a KU student early Friday morning.

March 27, 2009


A Kansas University student was hit on the head and robbed, police said, in what appears to be a random crime.

The incident happened at 4 a.m. Friday on the west side of McCollum Residence Hall, 1800 Engel Road, where the victim lives, the KU Public Safety Office said.

Police said the male victim told officials that he was approached by four men, who hit him on the head and took his wallet.

Officers are working to identify the suspects who left in a small, beige four-door car. Police said the victim did not indicate he knew the suspects.

Information about the crime should be reported to KU Crime Stoppers, at 864-8888.

Are all the thugs discovering Lawrence for the first time? It's almost as if a light bulb went off in every thug's head at once (like the sleeper Cylons) and they all felt compelled to drive to Lawrence and perpetrate.

The thugs will get worse.

That's why this city needs a DA who can act and a stronger police force.

So say we all!

That is freaky, I lived at McCollum when I went to KU in the late '90's. This kind of stuff never used to happen, and it seems to only be getting worse. I read that in 2000 there were 49 criminal assaults downtown, last year there were 250. I think the city leadership needs to get their heads out of the sand and start accepting that we have a real crime problem. It seems everyone wants to just pretend it's not happening and that we can still party like it's 1999.
