Two unidentified men allegedly robbed a Yates employee early this morning, assaulting him and locking him in a closet after entering the building through unknown means, according to a Department of Public Safety PSA. From the PSA:
On Monday, November 30, 2009 at approximately 2:00 a.m, a contract employee at Yates Field House reported to DPS that at approximately 1:46 a.m., two unidentified males entered the field house through an unknown means, assaulted him, took his car keys and cell phone, forced him into a closet, and locked him inside. DPS notified MPD who responded to the scene. The investigation determined that in addition to the theft of the keys and cell phone of the complainant, two safes and petty cash were stolen.
The PSA said that the employee was treated for minor injuries by GERMS, taken to the Georgetown Hospital, and released. There was also damage to property and office equipment in Yates.
The PSA describes the suspects as “[t]wo unknown black males wearing ski masks” and said that DPS is cooperating with MPD’s continuing investigation.
