On May 28, 2013 at approximately 9pm, a strong armed robbery occurred on the SJSU campus. The 45 year old non-affiliate, male victim was walking near the S/W corner of the Engineering Building when he was confronted by three suspects. The suspects surrounded the Victim and demanded all of his property. The Victim gave the female suspect his backpack, wallet and pocket change. The suspects searched through the backpack before returning it to the Victim. The suspects took the wallet and change and ran south on the 7th St. plaza. No weapons were seen and V was uninjured.
The Victim saw three additional African American male teens standing nearby when the crime occurred, but he did not know if they were involved with the three than confronted him. Those three subjects ran north when the suspects fled the area.
Suspect #1 was described as an African American female in her late teens to early 20's, approximately 5'8"-5'9", heavy set, having frizzy long hair and wearing earth tone colored sweats.
Suspect #2 was described as an African American male in his late teens to early 20's, 5'11"-6', wearing a white jacket with red, vertical stripes on the sleeves.
Suspect #3 was described only as an African American male.
On 06-10-13 at approximately 2150 hours, an indecent exposure occurred in SJSU's Duncan Hall Room #250. The female student victim was studying alone in the room when the suspect entered and sat down next to her. The suspect made small talk with the victim and asked her out on a date. The suspect then pulled down his pants and exposed his genitals to her.
The victim grabbed her phone, told the suspect to leave and threatened to call the police. The suspect left the room and was last seen east bound on the 2nd floor toward the elevator lobby. The suspect is still at large. The victim did not immediately call UPD due to bad cell phone reception. The victim was not injured.
The suspect is described as an Hispanic male 20-25 years of age, 5'6" to 5'7", 150-160 lbs, unshaven, wearing a teal "Sharks" hat, baggy white shirt and blue jeans.
The University Police Department reminds the community to avoid studying alone in classrooms late at night. If you see any suspicious persons or criminal activity, call 911 from any campus phone or from your cellular phone or activate any blue light emergency phone.
At approximately 0205 hours, today's date, several gunshots were reported and several bullet casings were found in the area of E. San Carlos and S. 4th Sts. No one was reported to have been shot and no suspects have been identified.
The University Community is reminded to use caution in this area during the late night or early morning hours. The University Police Department encourages the University Community to report any suspicious or criminal activity by dialing 9-1-1 or by activating a Blue Light telephone.
The only place you really see AAs in the Silicon Valley are in San Jose and Oakland. Tons of Vietnamese and some Mexicans too in SJ. SJ is about 40 mins from Oakland. 40 miles of I880 separates the two cities.
So 1 unarmed robbery, one indecent exposure, and one instance where gunshots were fired near campus makes it unsafe? Cool.
