Student robbed on campus

A student was robbed by force around 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday near the student drop-off area by the flagpole next to Student Services, according to flyers posted around Pierce College by the campus Sheriff’s Station.

The suspect – described as a black man, 20 to 25 years old, approximately six feet tall with a medium build and short hair – was wearing a light-colored T-shirt and dark shorts, according to the flyer.

He drove onto campus in a late model blue-green, four-door sedan and exited the vehicle from the passenger’s side, according to the flyer.

The suspect grabbed the victim’s cellphone and unsuccessfully tried to steal his backpack, according to the Sheriff’s Station.

The vehicle was last seen driving westbound on Brahma Drive toward Shepard Stadium, according to officers.

Students were alerted of the crime through an email circulated Thursday.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has no immediate details on the driver of the vehicle and asked that any information be directed to the Pierce College Sheriffs Station at (818) 719-6450.
