U-M students' cell phones stolen while they slept
Two University of Michigan students reported someone stole their cell phones while they slept at study desks Monday at the Duderstadt Center, police said.
Police are also looking for a man who attempted to steal a student's wallet from the third-floor of the same building on Tuesday.
Two students told police they fell asleep for about an hour at study desks at the Duderstadt Center, 2281 Bonisteel Blvd., and woke up at about 3:45 p.m. Monday to find both of their cell phones had been stolen.
Police spokeswoman Diane Brown said Wednesday police are still looking for suspects in that incident.
One day later, police were back at the center to investigate an attempted larceny.
The student told police she saw an unknown man searching through her backpack at about 2:20 p.m. Tuesday in a third-floor study desk. Police said the student asked the man what he was doing and he immediately left the room.
Officers responded to the area but were unable to locate the suspect, according to police.
The man was described as black with light skin and a thin to medium build. He is between 5-foot-7 inches and 5-foot-8 inches tall, in his mid 20s and was wearing a blue-and-yellow horizontal striped polo shirt, baggy blue jeans and a black hat with a white S on it.
