NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Rutgers police department, now investigating another robbery.
This one occurred at 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday on Hamilton Street, between Guilden and Division streets.
The victim, who is only described as being affiliated with the university, was walking on Hamilton Street when he was confronted by three males who demanded items of value, police said.
One of the males brandished a knife before all three fled in an unknown direction with the victim’s personal property. There were no injuries reported as a result of this incident.
Descriptions of the perpetrators are limited at this time, police said.
The New Brunswick Police Department asks that anyone with information, or who may have been in the area at the time, to contact the New Brunswick Police Department Detective Bureau at 732-745-5217.
Meanwhile, ADT has named Rutgers University the third most safe university in the nation, based off most recent crime data sets provided by the U.S. Department of Education’s Campus Safety Security Survey and the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting data. The results were then calculated and ranked using the information provided by those two reports.
In this 2018 report, ADT writes, "With an enrollment just under 66,000, the university has a lot of work to do to keep each student safe—and it succeeds admirably. Thanks to the Rutgers University Police Department, help is always nearby, whether through officers on foot, bike, or even horseback. It’s easy to contact the department to request a late-night escort/walking buddy or a ride home via the shuttle."
