Crime Alert - Attempted theft of property from vehicles parked on West 121st Street (10/06/2018)

Dear Members of the Teachers College Community: 

On Saturday morning, October 6, 2018, at approximately 1:00 A.M., TC Public Safety Officers detected and prevented an attempted theft of property from vehicles parked along West 121st Street. Public Safety Officers observed a male individual wearing a grey hoodie sweatshirt and pajama pants walking along West 121st Street, trying to open car doors as he walked by each car parked on the street. The male fled the scene when confronted by the Officers. 

121st Ash Gate West

If you are parking on the street at night it is best to ensure that your vehicle is locked, that no valuables are left in the vehicle, and that no personal property is left in plain view.
