Timely Warning Issued - Attempted Abduction

At approximately 3 p.m. today, a student reported to Campus Safety and Collegeville Police the following:

On Sunday, November 17, 2019, at 2:15 a.m. an Ursinus student was walking along 6th Avenue towards Main Street when a Silver Honda (possibly an Accord with a Pennsylvania license plate) pulled up alongside the student. Three males wearing ski masks exited the vehicle and took hold of the student’s arm. The males were laughing and shouting an expletive.

The males got back into the vehicle and sped off down 6th Avenue after the student yelled for help. They are described as white, tall and skinny and possibly college aged. Two of the males were wearing black clothing and a third was wearing a burgundy Penn State sweatshirt.

If anyone has any information or sees a vehicle and actors fitting the description above, they are urged to contact Campus Safety and/or Collegeville Police as soon as possible.
