Armed Robberies in Oakland Area

Be careful at night around the Oakland/Shadyside/Squirrel Hill area. There have been about a dozen armed robberies in the past few weeks including one early this morning.  In each case two men in hooded sweatshirts come up to their victims (usually walking alone) and pull a gun.  This morning the robbers were even more aggressive than normal and beat up the victim. 

If you’re in the area and need to get somewhere and don’t want to walk alone here are two options: Call Safe Walk at 412-268-SAFE (7233) or the Escort Service at 412-268-RIDE (7433)
