Two crime incidents were reported off-campus early morning on Saturday, between the hours of 2 and 3 a.m., Chief of the Rutgers University Police Department (RUPD) Kenneth Cop stated in a University-wide email yesterday. 

The first incident occurred on Wyckoff Street, in the area of Bartlett Street, to a victim who was not affiliated with the University. The victim reported that following a verbal altercation with a group of male perpetrators, he was assaulted and subsequently transported to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the email. 

The second incident occurred on Easton Avenue between Prosper Street and Bristol Street, with the victim reporting that she was approached by 4 to 5 male perpetrators who shoved her and removed an item of value prior to fleeing the area.
