Strong-Arm Robbery Reported Outside UCSB Dorm

A man was assaulted early Saturday during a strong-arm robbery outside an off-campus dormitory, according to the UCSB Police Department.

The incident occurred about 1:30 a.m. at the Santa Catalina Residence Hall at the corner of El Colegio and Storke roads, police said.

“The victim was assaulted by a male subject who attempted to forcibly take possession of his laptop and iPhone,” police said.

The suspect, who was not armed, was described as an Hispanic male, 5-foot-7, with a stocky build and short hair, wearing blue jeans and a white shirt.

He was last seen fleeing on foot north on Storke Road, police said.

The victim was not hurt, police said.
