REPORTED OFFENSE: Reported Robbery with a Knife or Cutting Instrument: Taking or attempting to take anything of value from the care, custody or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear by use of a knife, broken bottle, razor, ice pick or other cutting or stabbing instrument as weapon or as a means of force to threaten the victim or put the victim in fear, was reported to have occurred near the White Building between Monday August 31, 2012 and Saturday, September 1, 2012.
