One black suspect was described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall, average build and wearing a black hoodie. The second black suspect was described as 6 feet, average build and wearing a tan hoodie. The white suspect has dark bushy hair, average build and wearing a dark hoodie.

The three suspects were last seen walking on East Second Street toward the Hartline Science Center. The victim was not injured. The Bloomsburg University Safety and Police is investigating the incident.

Always be vigilant of your surroundings and do not walk alone. If you feel threatened or uncomfortable about a situation do not hesitate to notify police.

The university recommends students walk in groups and keep a cell phone readily accessible. Also, consider carrying a whistle. While there are limitations to the effectiveness of a whistle against all threats, it could work well in a difficult situation as students would first blow into the whistle to attract help and then use a cell phone to call for help.

In case of an emergency, students should call (570) 389-4168. For your safety, there are emergency call boxes available throughout campus. If you are in town and need help call 911. This campus alert is issued in accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Crime Statistics Act of 1990.
