Security Alert Homewood: A Hopkins graduate student reports that as he was unlocking his bicycle from a parking meter located on the roadway on the east side of the New Engineering Building at 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 15, he was approached by two males. One male asked to borrow the bike and the other displayed a knife and proceeded to take the graduate student's wallet and money from his pockets. Both then fled with the victim's bicycle down the walkway alongside the Baltimore Museum of Art's Sculpture Garden, where the student lost sight of them. He was not injured. The student described his assailants as black males, both about 27 years old; one was 5 feet 10 inches, thin build, thin face, thin mustache, very short hair, wearing dark short-sleeve shirt and dark, baggy knee-length trousers. He was armed with a knife, which had a rusty six-inch blade. The other male was described as 5 feet 8 inches, 180 pounds, round faced with very short hair, wearing a dark T-shirt and denim shorts. Anyone with information regarding this incident should call Homewood Security, at (410) 516-4600, or the Northern District Police, at (410) 396-2455.
