— North Carolina State University campus police on Wednesday released a sketch of the man suspected of stabbing and robbing a student last week.

The image shows a man with a beard and mustache wearing a hoodie.

The female student told campus police a person in a gray sweatshirt and jeans stabbed her with a small knife and then ran off with her black and gray book bag on Friday afternoon in a parking lot near Varsity Drive.

    "Police described the suspect as a dark-skinned black man, possibly in his early 20’s with possible dreadlocks and acne on the right side of his face. Police also said he is between 5’9” and 5’10” tall and weighs between 150-160 lbs."

    I thought a picture would be worth at least a handful of words. Here, not so much.

    How about details like height, weight, build, race, etc. A pencil drawing helps buy by itself is not as useful without the description the victim reported.

    More PC from capital broadcasting.

    I hope the student heals quickly and has a good support circle.
    And I hope they catch this guy.

    Hope the student wasn't badly injured. Also hope they catch that creature.
