A woman was pushed down to the ground by an unknown male in a strong-arm robbery at 201 Maple Ave. Sunday afternoon, the Cornell University Police Department said in an email.
The woman told police that the male confronted her, took her laptop and then fled up a stairway toward 301 Maple Ave. at approximately 3:30 p.m.
The perpetrator was described as “a black male, approximately six feet tall, weighing about 230 pounds, with short braids, a scruffy beard and stocky build,” CUPD said.
No weapons were shown or threatened to be displayed, according to the email.
As of Tuesday night, there were no updates available on the case, according to CUPD Chief Kathy Zoner. Police are continuing their investigation and ask anyone with related information to contact them.
