Two females unaffiliated with the University were robbed on the north side of campus over the last two weeks, Philadelphia Police officials said.

On Nov. 25, a 51-year old female was robbed while walking along the 4000 block of Ludlow Street, located between Market and Chestnut streets, at about 9:10 p.m.

A man approached her, sprayed her in the face with mace and took $9 from her.

The suspect is described as a black male of heavy build, wearing all black and between 5 feet and 5 feet, 7 inches.

He fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and subsequently released.
