Crime surge at the University of St. Thomas worries some. Local ABC affiliate reports on a problem that’s been brewing for a month.
In just three week’s time, there have been two violent crimes. Both were near the intersection of Mt. Vernon and West Main on the west side of campus. On the first incident in mid-December, a professor was attacked by a group of young men, hit on the head and had his wallet stolen. Last Friday a student worker was robbed at gunpoint. Students have taken notice.
