Province Crime sparks attention
By Caitlyn Crenshaw–
U of L students have been held at gunpoint in the Province student apartment complex in two separate incidents within the last two weeks.
Kenneth Brown, assistant university police chief, told Wave3News that the suspects were masked, inciting apprehension in some students living in and close to the area.
Police said that the two incidents occurred within eight days of each other on Jan. 27 and Feb. 4. University police described both incidences occurring between the late evenings to early morning hours involving two men dressed in U of L apparel where one of the men showed a handgun and made demands for money.
“(They were) approximately in their 20s and on the last occasion they were wearing U of L clothing,” Brown said to Wave3.
According to the crime report for each incident, both cases are currently open with no one being formally charged.
As police review security cameras, they hope students will continue to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity. University police are teaming up with Louisville Metro Police Department to solve these incidents and increase the safety of students. If students suspect suspicious activity or feel unsafe, they are encouraged to call university police at (502) 852-6111.
