Public Safety Notice Update: Robbery

As a follow-up to the Public Safety Notice distributed earlier this afternoon, the Syracuse Police Department and the SU Department of Public Safety (DPS) have taken into custody three individuals suspected to be involved with a dispute and attempted robbery in an apartment in the 500 block of Slocum Drive.

When the first DPS officer arrived on the scene, he spotted three individuals who appeared to be related to the incident, which was reported by a student in the apartment. The three individuals were questioned on the scene, detained and later transferred to the custody of the Syracuse Police Department. None of the individuals are affiliated with Syracuse University.

A fourth suspect fled the scene on foot in an easterly direction away from campus. The male suspect is described as wearing an all-black jump suit and black hat. No further description is available at this time. The scene is now clear and normal activity may resume.

No injuries were reported and no property was stolen.
