Crime Alert - December 13, 2021

December 13, 2021

Dear Loyola Community,

Early this morning at around 12:30 a.m., two Loyola University Chicago students reported an armed robbery near the intersection of N Glenwood and W Albion. Our students were not injured during this robbery.

As relayed to Campus Safety, the offender demanded property from the students and displayed a handgun. The students handed over the items, and the offender fled from the scene by foot.

Safety Tips

  • If a person threatens you, follow any demands and run away as soon as it is safe to do so. Once in a safe place, immediately notify Campus Safety at 773-508-SAFE or the Chicago Police Department at 911.

  • Investigative follow-up will be dependent on the amount of detail a person can recall. It is important to remember as many identifying characteristics about the offender(s) as possible. This can include the license plate of any involved vehicle, physical characteristics of the person, their clothing, any weapons used, direction of flight, etc.

  • If you see something you believe to be suspicious, immediately contact Campus Safety or the Chicago Police Department. 

Campus Safety recognizes that survivors are not at fault for any crime. Students who are seeking resources related to acts of violence can contact the Wellness Center at 773-508-2530 or visit the Community Coalition on Gender-Based Violence website. Faculty and staff in need of resources are encouraged to utilize the University’s Employee Assistance Program.

The safety and well-being of the Loyola community is always of paramount importance and a top priority.
