PLYMOUTH - University police are urging students not to walk alone after a second student reported that someone tried to grab her and force her into a motor vehicle..
Police say the incident occurred around 2:15 a.m. Sunday when the woman was walking along the north end of Russell Street. While walking, the student was approached by a man in a motor vehicle who tried to force her into the vehicle. The student was able to resist and escaped from the man, running to her residence and contacting authorities.
Police say they do not have a clear description of the suspect at this time, but that this is the second time this month an incident of this type was reported. The first report was on Sept. 18 to the Plymouth police.
"It can be assumed that conditions continue to exist that may pose a threat to members and guests of the community. Consider carefully whether your presence at or near this area while unaccompanied could place you in danger," university police said in a safety bulletin on Sunday.
