Timely Warning

At approximately 9:20 PM, Friday, Sept. 27., a UIW student who resides on campus was robbed at gun point near the 281/Hildebrand area of the Broadway campus. Three males, two African American and one Hispanic, appearing to be ages 18-25, on foot, waved her down.  She stopped to ask if they needed help, they asked to borrow her phone, then pulled a gun and robbed her of her phone and her car, a gray 2018 Audi Q3. The suspects fled the scene, and drove off campus in the student's car heading west on Hildebrand. The student reported the incident to UIWPD.

UIWPD is actively investigating the incident. San Antonio, Olmos Park and Alamo Heights Police Departments are working with UIWPD searching for the suspects.

UIWPD is taking extra measures this evening to secure the campus. There is no active threat at this time.

To report suspicious activity on campus call UIWPD at (210) 829-6030.
