AGGRAVATED BATTERY

From the TUPD email:

“OFF CAMPUS AGGRAVATED BATTERY

DATE & TIME OF OCCURRENCE:   March 20, 2012, about 11:38 PM
LOCATION:      Area of St. Charles and Burdette
REPORTED OFFENSE: A Tulane student was riding his bicycle westbound on St. Charles near Burdette when he observed an unknown subject holding a baseball bat. The subject told the victim to pull over, and as he tried to go around the subject, the victim was struck in the back of the head with the baseball bat. He dropped his bicycle and fled to his residence. The victim sustained a laceration.
SUSPECT’S DESCRIPTION: Black male, 20 – 25 yoa, 5’9,”wearing a black baseball cap, black shirt, and black shorts. Direction of flight was unknown.”

I think this is one of the most premeditated attacks I can think of that has happened in the recent past, and a clear indicator that Tulane students, and by association residents of the Uptown area, are targets.

About It's Not Enough

We are Tulane students who appreciate the effort TUPD gives to protect us, but believe that it is inadequate. Given the amount of assaults, robberies, burglaries and other types of crime that surrounds the Tulane Campus, we need more from TUPD. Simply put, it's not enough.
