    College Student Home Invaded

    4 sought for home invasion near ODU

    NORFOLK -- Police are investigating a home invasion near the campus of Old Dominion University.

    Authorities say four men knocked on the door of an apartment on W. 43rd Street Monday afternoon. They had guns and forced their way inside, robbing the two people of electronics before leaving.

    One of the victims is an ODU student.

    No one was hurt.

    If you know anything that can help police, call Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

    ODU issued a safety alert about the incident as well.

    ODU SAFETY ALERT:

    Norfolk police reported an armed home invasion by four male suspects on 43rd Street near Colley Avenue at approximately 3:30 p.m. Monday, June 21. The Old Dominion University community is reminded to take precautions, ensure car and home doors are locked, and report suspicious activity to police. If further details -- including a description of the suspects -- become available, the campus will be notified immediately.
    I'm sure the college thinks the college alert system helps.

    Report suspicious activity to police vs. arm yourself -- which would have helped in this case.

    well no one was hurt in this case, so in this case, arming yourself would have escalated the situation. but in other cases, yes, arming would would

    Maybe so, but who wants to bet their life on that chance?

    Bingo!

    I'm not inclined to want to put my trust in the benevolence of a felon.

    I'm just saying in THIS SPECIFIC CASE, there was no life lost or shots fired, but yes, you never know when a BG is going to be really bad.

    However, if the victims had been armed, there could have been shots fired . . . in the right direction.

    A much better headline would have been "4 Killed After Attempting To Invade Home". :)
