Crime on Campus


Victoria University’s Kelburn campus got a taste of Highway Patrol on Monday night.

At approximately 9.45pm on Monday 26 August, local police stopped a car on Salamanca Road.

“It’s alleged the car had been stolen,” said Victoria Evans, Communications Manager for the Wellington District Police.

The occupants ran from the car in an attempt to escape the police and crossed onto the Kelburn campus.

Josh, 21, saw the scene as he walked home that evening after studying at university.

“They were close to the VicLink building on Kelburn Parade,” he said. “There were five [police] cars and cops everywhere… it was madness,” he said.

Police caught up with two offenders shortly afterwards on Glenn Road.
