Campus incident of 17 June: update


June 26th, 2019

Further to the recent instance of robbery on the University Park campus on 17 June, a 17-year old male has appeared in court (Monday 24 June) charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of wounding with intent, possession of a bladed article and fraud. A second 17 year old male has now been arrested on suspicion of the same offences.

Nottinghamshire Police and the University Security team are continuing to ensure this incident is investigated thoroughly.

Anyone who saw any of the incidents at University Park should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 35 of 17 June 2019.

The students who received injuries during the robbery have received hospital treatment and they and their families are continuing to receive full support from our student welfare teams. They are both keen to continue their studies and we will provide every assistance with this as they recuperate.

Campus security teams are continuing to support Nottinghamshire Police with their enquiries. Both the police and our campus security teams are mounting additional patrols to assure safety, and are reviewing lighting and CCTV provision in the area.

Staff and students should continue to take sensible precautions if studying or travelling around campus late at night, and follow our standard safety advice, in particular:

  • walk with friends
  • tell someone where you are
  • keep to well-lit areas
  • conceal any valuables on your person

Please be assured that our campus remains a safe place to study and the chances of becoming a victim of crime or anti-social behaviour are very low.
