A University of Oregon student told UO Police that an unknown man tried to take his backpack on Agate Street just south of 13th Avenue, near Boynton Hall at about 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning, November 30. The student fought back and kept his backpack, while the suspect fled.

Students can register to have police check their off-campus homes daily during winter break. No cost.
