'U' research tackles

OPINION
From the Daily:
Credit limits
Of all the things the Univer-
sity needs right now, motorcycle
parts and home electronics aren't
near the top of the list. But that's
what the University got because
of the lax oversight of Univer-
sity-issued credit cards. With the
prospect of the state further cut-
ting higher-education spending,
hopefully the University's credit-
card problems won't translate
into less state funding and higher
tuition.

CAMPUS CRIME
Man mugged at gunpoint by campus

DPS issued crime alert
to warn suspects
at large
By EMILY BARTON
Daily News Editor
The Department of Public Safety
issued a crime alert Saturday after
an Ann Arbor resident was mugged
at gunpoint near campus because
the suspects are at large and poten-
tially dangerous.
At about 1:20 a.m., the victim told

police two men approached him
on Lincoln Avenue near Hill Street
while he was walking from a party
at a friend's house to his residence
on State Street, an Ann Arbor Police
officer said.
One of the two called out for the
victim's attention and asked him for
directions to Granger Avenue.
Police said after the victim said
he was unable to give the men direc-
tions, one of the men pulled out a
black handgun and demanded the
victim give him all the money he
had. While the victim stood still,
the second man then reached into
the victim's pocket and took his cell

phone and his wallet, which con-
tained $19.
The suspects told the victimto lie
onthe ground before they ran south
on Lincoln Avenue, the crime alert
said.
The victim got up after hearing
the men leave and called Ann Arbor
Police.
Granger Avenue is in the direc-
tion the men ran. Lincoln Avenue
dead ends at Burns Park, but begins
again on the other side of the park
that Granger Avenue runs along.
While the area where the incident
occurred has mostly student resi-
dents, Granger Avenue has several

expensive homes and little student
housing.
The Ann Arbor Police Depart-
ment sent information about the
incident to DPS because of its prox-
imity to University students, the
officer said.
The victim told police that the
men were of average build, about six
feet tall and wearing black hooded
sweatshirts with the hoods up.
Police ask for anyone with infor-
mation about the incident to call
their tip line at (734) 996-3199.
