Brandeis Student Mugged in Waltham

Robber escaped with several items.

A Brandeis University student was mugged recently on the Charles River walkway, acording to the school's student newspaper, The Justice. 

The student was attacked on the Riverwalk near Moody Street on Oct. 16 and the robber escaped with a wallet, personal items and an unspecified amount of money, according to the newspaper's website.  

Brandeis University public safety officials are advising students avoid dipslaying electronic devices when walking in public and to be aware of their surroundings, according to the Justice website. They also suggested walking with friends.

I checked with the Acting Chief of Police and he has informed me that this incident occurred at 11:45pm. While this does not diminish the seriousness of this incident, I would note that the Riverwalk is not lighted and public parks are technically closed at dusk. While all of Waltham, including the Riverwalk, continue to be very safe, it is inadvisable to walk alone in unlit and remote areas after dark in any community.
