Attempted Robbery

San Diego State police responded to an attempted robbery in an alleyway off Montezuma Road when a man dressed in all black threatened an SDSU student with a switchblade. The call came in just after 11 p.m. Thursday night. The man was attempting to steal the student’s cell phone. The student was able to escape on foot.

The assailant was described as a 6-foot-1 African-American male, about 24 years old.

Panic attack

An individual experienced a severe anxiety attack near the North Education building on campus. The report was called in Wednesday evening and SDSU police responded immediately. The individual was requesting assistance to quell her anxiety and wanted to see Counseling and Psychological Services. SDSU police determined the person was going to be OK.

Suspicious person at Starbucks

A Starbucks customer stood at the front of the line and refused to respond to a barista Sunday afternoon. SDSU police were called after the man remained unresponsive to the coffee shop employees. The man’s eyes began rolling back into his head, according to the Starbucks employees, which prompted concern for his mental and physical health.

Upon arrival, paramedics evaluated the man and he appeared to be in good medical condition. Officers then took him home.
