Thieves' demand: bud or blood

Department of Public
Safety reports concerning
residence hall robberies
arecommonlyfoundinstu-
dent inboxes, but reports
about raids at knifepoint
are, not surprisingly, less
frequent.
That is, except for the
winter of 1974, when there
were two such robberies in
one night.
Between the hours of
midnight and 1 a.m. stu-
dents from both South
Quad Residence Hall and
West Quad Residence Hall
were threatened at knife-
pointby a group of robbers,
according to a January 26,
1974 article in The Michi-
gan Daily.
Howard Jacobson told

the Daily at the time that
three males sauntered into
his room in West Quad
through the half-open
door around 12:15 a.m. and
pulled out a knife, threat-
ening Jacobson and his
two friends.
The tallest of the three
assailants, wielding a
12-inch butcher knife, tar-
geted one of Jacobson's
friends and said, "You
have three minutes to find
some dope or I'll slit your
throat," according to the
article in the Daily.
Three minutes didn't
give the friend much time
and when the victims could
not produce any "dope,"
the tallest robber repeated
the threat and searched

the room himself.
Upon finding Jacobson's
wallet containing $50,
the shortest of the rob-
bers nervously urged his
cohorts to quit the scene,
according to the article.
After instructingthe three
victims to count to 50, they
fled the scene, taking the
$50 with them.
A mere 30 minutes later,
Mark Katzenberger, Tim
Ryback and Debra Joy
heard a knock on their
door in South Quad. Upon
opening the door, they saw
two of the three robbers
who had visited Jacobson's
room.
The assailants brought
the 12-inch knife with
them once again and the

tallest drew the knife to
Katzenberger's throat and
promised to slit it if mari-
juana was not produced,
according to the Daily
article.
These three victims
were also forced to the
ground while the robbers
searched the room for the
illusive "dope." The rob-
bers came up short, but did
snag $15 from Katzenberg-
er's wallet, and $5 from
Joy's.
This time the victims
were instructed to count
to 300 while the assail-
ants made their getaway.
The victims, IRyback told
the Dairy, rebelliously only
counted to 100.
