University Police Chief Dolores Stafford said this afternoon that a GW infomail suggesting that two robbery suspects might be on or near GW’s campus was sent out as a precaution.
The e-mail, which listed the descriptions of the two suspects and the location of robbery committed this afternoon, indicated that the two men might be in the Foggy Bottom area. Stafford said she sent the e-mail as a cautionary note, as there is evidence the men are moving around D.C. but nothing yet that specifically suggests they are on campus.
“[The Metropolitan Police Department] appeared to be notifying all law enforcement agencies in the area to be on the lookout for the individuals described, not just GW,” Stafford said.
As of 5:40 p.m., the suspects had not yet been apprehended, Stafford said.
