By Jamie Welch, Editor-in-Chief
A Gettysburg College student was the victim of an attempted robbery in which an unknown person punched him to the ground, authorities say.
Authorities say the incident happened at 1:51am Friday morning in the 100-block of Carlisle Street, in front of the Carlisle Street Apartment Building.
Two or possibly three white males approached the victim and wanted his wallet, the report states. The victim refused and one of the suspects assaulted him by striking him with his fist knocking him to the ground. A second suspect stopped the first suspect from striking him again and they then fled the scene. Gettysburg Borough Police are investigating this incident.
Suspect 1 is described as a white male approximately 5’9” tall, with long black hair, and in his mid 20’s wearing a white T-shirt. Suspect 2 is described as a white male approximately 5’9” and also in his mid 20’s.
This incident follows a burglary this past Sunday in Musselman Hall. In that incident, someone gained forcible entry to a room and removed property from within. No suspects have been identified in that case.
Anyone with information on either incident is urged to call DPS at 717-337-6912 or the Gettysburg Borough Police Department at 911.
