U-M Issues Crime Alert Following 3 Home Invasions

ANN ARBOR (WWJ) – Another crime alert has been posted at the University of Michigan.

Police at U-M are investigating reports of three recent home invasions. All were reported Sunday morning along McIntyre Drive, near the school’s soccer field. In each case, residents say money and electronics were stolen from the first floor of their apartments as they slept upstairs. Police think the break-ins occurred through unlocked sliding glass doors.

Police have issued the following advisory to the community:

•If you see a suspect, do not approach–call police.

•Always keep your doors locked, even while at home.

•Look assertive and be aware of your surroundings.

•Be aware that your risk increases in secluded and isolated areas.

•Walk with a trusted friend or co-worker when possible.

•Trust your intuition. If a particular situation makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, choose an alternative.

•Have your keys in hand before you reach your vehicle or residence.

•If you feel threatened on campus, look for a blue light emergency phone or call 911 from any phone (no coins need for 911 calls).
