Robbery reported at Downtown Campus


A man was assaulted and robbed at the Downtown Campus on March 17, while Pima Community College was closed and students and faculty were away for Spring Break.

Although no one associated with PCC was involved in the incident, the college circulated a Campus Watch bulletin via email to all registered students and staff.

Sending the bulletin to everyone is a change in school protocol, stemming from an attempted sexual assault at Downtown Campus in January.

“It is important to provide you with as much information as possible about crimes that occur on or near our campuses,” PCC Police Chief Stella Bay said in the email.

A man and woman were crossing through the parking lot on the north side of campus when the man was attacked by another male, according to the bulletin.

The assailant stole money from the man’s wallet and fled the scene. The woman then called the PCC Police Department.

The victim was not seriously injured and declined medical treatment. The woman was unharmed.

The suspect was described as a black male with dreadlocks, 25-30 years old, between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighing between 160-180 pounds.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
