A woman received minor injuries on SF State’s quad early this morning when two unknown men tried to grab her purse, according to the police report.
According to a statement put out by the campus police, the incident occurred at around 1:45 a.m. on the path between the Student Health Center and Burk Hall. The woman tried to hold on to her purse but was dragged on the ground. The men took the woman’s wallet, but dropped the purse. The woman ran screaming toward the residential halls, students came to her aid and she was taken to a hospital.
Ellen Griffin, university spokesperson, said this incident should remind students to always walk in pairs at night and to take advantage of safety meetings offered in the residential halls.
“When there’s a bad economy, crime goes up,” Griffin said. “Especially in the city.”
