Attempted Simple Robbery
On Tuesday 1/19/10 at approximately 1:55 p.m. (2) two B/M subjects closely followed a TUMS staff member from Gravier and Lasalle Street up the stairwell and across level 1A of the Medical School Parking Garage. The staff member swiped into the building at the mezzanine level door and one of the subjects tailgated into the alcove before the door closed where the subject grabbed the male staff member around the neck in an apparent attempt to rob him. The staff member began to scream for help, the startled subjects fled, and he notified TUHSC Police.
Officers immediately responded, searched the area, and located and arrested the first subject. The other subject was then located and arrested.
