The University of Akron Police Department and the Akron Police Department are asking for your help in locating a man who committed an armed robbery at 8:30 this morning at a business on East Exchange Street near Spicer Street. No injuries were reported.

The suspect, who remains at large, was described as a black male between the ages of 20 and 24. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and a Boston Red Sox ballcap. A white bandanna obscured his face, and he carried a black backpack. He entered the business from a rear door and confronted two employees. He demanded money and the employees' cell phones. 

If you have any information about this incident, please call the UA Police at 330-972-7263.

UA Police Chief Paul Callahan reminds everyone of these general safety precautions:

  • Use the campus escort service. Patrol members will escort you between campus locations from 5 p.m. to midnight nightly up to and including Friday, Dec. 22. Call 330-972-7263 to request the service.
  • Walk in a group, if possible.
  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • If you feel threatened, cross the street, find an emergency phone, or enter a store or business. There are about 50 emergency phones on campus, distinguished by their blue lights. Operational around the clock, the phones connect directly to the UA police dispatcher.
  • Have your keys in hand as you approach your car. Check the back seat before you enter.
  • Alcohol and other drugs can impair your perceptions and decision-making. Do not place yourself in a vulnerable position by being intoxicated or under the influence of other drugs.
  • Program the University's emergency line into your cell phone: 330-972-7123. Or call 9-1-1.
