Open season on BU students again
Police are investigating three separate robberies of BU students overnight, one involving a big-nosed white guy with a gun.
BU Today reports a female BU student and two companions were held up at gunpoint around 12:15 a.m. at St. Paul and Thatcher streets in Brookline by two white men, one of them about 6'2" in a white hoodie and a black jacket, who held a gun and had a prominent proboscis. The other guy is about 6', thick, wearing a black jacket with a scarf over his face.
A BU student had his phone taken about 11:30 p.m. in the alley next to the Packards Corner Shaw after a brief beatdown by a white guy in a North Face jacket and a muscular Asian guy. The final incident was around 1:25 a.m. at 275 Babcock St., where a student sitting on the steps was approached by a black guy and a black woman, who pushed her to the ground and rifled through her purse.
