According to the National Center for Victims of Crime robbery is when someone takes something from you by force or by threat. Because of the use of threat of force, robbery is considered a violent crime even if you are not physically hurt in the act.
If you are a victim of robbery you may experience a wide range of emotions and feelings including but not limited to:
It is important that you get help. Being robbed is not your fault. It is important to tell someone you trust and to report the crime to police. Reporting to the police helps you receive the support you need following the crime, may result in the apprehension of the assailant, and contributes to the overall safety of the Tulane Community.
If you are experiencing any of the reactions listed above, please contact Julia Broussard, Coordinator of the Office of Violence Prevention and Support Services at (504) 314-2161 to schedule an appointment where she can explain what victims support services are available to you. Also, meeting with a counselor to discuss your experience is beneficial. You can call and schedule an appointment with a counselor at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) (504) 314-2277
