Armed Robbery on WMU Campus

On October 29, an armed robbery occurred on the WMU campus between Sangren Hall and Sindecuse Health Center at approx. 8:50PM.  The victims were both students.  Two suspects approached the two victims, and one of the suspects (#1) pulled up his shirt revealing a gun.  The victims tried to run from the suspects but one of the suspects grabbed a hold the one of the victim's backpacks and pulled it off of him.


The first suspect is described as a B/M, 18-20 years old, 5-8 to 5-10, wearing a University of Michigan pull over with a black t-shirt underneath and dark jeans (see sketch below).


The second subject is described as a B/M, 18-20 years old 6-1 wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, a black knit hat and dark pants. 


The subjects left in a vehicle described as dark green or black, possible Honda Civic or similar make, four door.  The vehicle had some type of storage rack on the roof of the vehicle. 


WMU is offering a $500 dollar reward for information leading to the identity/arrest of the suspects.

Silent Observer encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and lack of interest.

Silent Observer provides a telephone number and web tip page  to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their crime-fighting efforts.   In addition, Silent Observer can receive  text messages which enables Silent Observer and the tipster to communicate back and forth anonymously.

Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest and conviction, or grand jury indictment, of a felony offender.

Silent Observer relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
