Robbery at Ryerson

On Oct. 28 around 3 a.m. Ryerson University Security and Emergency Services were made aware that a Ryerson community member, an hour earlier, was approached by three subjects on the north side of the George Vari Engineering and Computing Centre (ENG) on the south sidewalk of Gould Street.

One subject insisted that the victim “hang out with them,” as he placed his hands on the victim’s shoulder from behind.  Declining, the victim pushed the subject away and left the area, and walked eastbound towards the international living and learning centre (ILC).

The victim realized he was missing his wallet, which he had placed in his right coat pocket, and contacted Toronto Police Services and Ryerson University Security & Emergency Services to report the incident.

The victim was unable to provide a detailed description of the subjects.

If you are a witness to a crime or have information please call Ryerson Security at 416-979-5040, or Toronto Police Services through Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477). For Emergencies dial “80” (internal phones only), and to see all security incidents please visit
