Potential underwear theft thwarted by student

By Michael McFall, News Editor

A man tried to steal a female student’s underwear at Benchmark Plaza Building 821, a student apartment building.

The student was sleeping in her apartment Friday night when a noise woke her up. She used her cell phone as a flashlight to see a man dressed in all black on the floor. She screamed.

He grabbed and pushed her before running out of the apartment. She called U Police, but he was long gone before they arrived.

Officers noted that the girl’s dresser drawer was open. They concluded he was trying to steal her underwear when she woke up and interrupted his crime.

The man is described as tall with very short or no hair.
