A University senior was injured in a hit-and-run incident at 40th and Sansom streets last Friday, University Police said this week. The student, who was riding her bike down 40th Street at 7:47 a.m., was hit by a black Pontiac Fiero, which slowed for a minute, and then sped away down the street, police said. The student was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where she was treated in the Emergency Room and released, police said. Police would not release the name of the student, and have not made any arrests in the incident. In an unrelated incident, four males stole a wallet from a male University student at 41st and Walnut streets at 5 a.m. on August 5. The student was robbed while walking down 41st Street towards Chancellor Street by two of the men who were walking towards him. The other two men were parked in a car on 41st Street. After the robbery, the men jumped into the car and drove away north on 41st Street. The men also took the student's keys, but threw them back before they escaped. There were no injuries in the incident. In another unrelated incident, a male stole $95 from a University student outside 4216 Pine Street on August 8 at 11:10 p.m. The male student was robbed while trying to get into his car. The assailant took the student's wallet -- which also contained a check for $95 -- and attempted to take his car keys. The assailant ran west on Pine Street after a brief struggle during which the student stabbed him in the head with his keys.
