Re: Campus Crime Alerts : Baylor

As a current Baylor student, I can attest that alerts are not always sent out in a timely manner. Sometimes, it takes several hours for an alert to be sent after a crime has occurred. Also, as an update, two armed robberies occurred very close to campus yesterday (January 31st).

"On Jan. 31, 2015, the Baylor Department of Public Safety was informed of two off-campus robberies. The first robbery occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. at the Valero convenience store at 1125 Speight Street. The second robbery occurred at approximately 3:55 p.m. at the Valero convenience store at 901 S. Fifth Street. At this time it appears both robberies were committed by the same suspect. The clerks at both locations told Waco Police that the robbery suspect brandished a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money. The clerks described the suspect as a black male, clean shaven , 50 - 55 years old, 5’ 6”, 150 lbs., wearing a baseball cap with a white or silver front panel, sunglasses, at one store a light color jacket and at the other store a green long sleeve button down shirt, khaki pants and white tennis. There were no reported injuries. The suspect left both scenes initially on foot, but it is believed a vehicle may have been parked close to each location. Although there was never any imminent danger to the campus, this timely warning is being sent to heighten everyone’s awareness and to comply with the Clery Act."

This alert was sent to students at 5:34 p.m.
