A Longwood Medical Area already jolted by the gun incident outside Brigham and Women's Hospital on Friday was put on alert again this morning after a woman was robbed at knifepoint and her assailant fled down Brookline Avenue.
Stanley Staco reports a woman was robbed before 10:30 a.m. the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health sent out an alert:
Police are searching for an individual with a knife on Brookline Ave. headed toward Longwood Ave. Avoid the area.
Other institutions in the area sent similar messages. Not long after, the alerts were canceled, but around 11:30, the public-health school sent out a new alert:
Suspect from previous alerts has been reported in vicinity of 360 Longwood Ave., light-skinned gentleman with dread locks and blue jacket.
