Be careful out there, University of Louisville students. The university sent out an e-mail this evening warning students of a slight gas smell on campus. Apparently, the stench is worse than it usually is during home football games.
Also, quit robbing people. It’s not a good look.
Residents and employees on the west side of Belknap Campus may notice a slight gas smell for the next couple of days. A construction crew drilling on the Student Recreation Center site hit a gas pocket several hundred feet below ground. Water and gas are expected to seep from the well for at least the next day, but at levels that are harmless and probably not detectable by most people off the site. Fire department and environmental health and safety officers have inspected the site and will continue to monitor it.
The University of Louisville Police Department is investigating a report of an attempted robbery Saturday, Oct. 20, in the parking area of Community Park, 2033 S. Fourth St.
At about 8:11 p.m., the victim, not a UofL student, was standing by her vehicle when a suspect approached her and demanded her money. He had a weapon. The victim told the suspect that she did not have any money. He took her cell phone and tossed it into the bushes and fled away from campus.
The victim described the suspect as a 25-year-old black male with light skin. He was 5’8” to 5’9” tall, weighed 170 pounds, had a medium build and had a tattoo — possibly of a star — under his right eye. He was wearing a gray University of Louisville sweat shirt with a white UofL ski cap with a red “L.”
