There has been another attempted break-in at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, according to a letter sent to students by Public Safety Chief Tony Reyes.

Reyes said a female student reported that an unknown male suspect tried to break into her University-owned house near West Woods and Kimberly Avenue around 6:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

The suspect did not make it inside and was gone by the time police arrived. He is described as tall and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

The student was not hurt.

Earlier this month a rideshare and delivery driver was accused of similar crimes in the area. Police said in that case the suspect targeted the homes of female customers.

Police say a rideshare and delivery driver broke into the home of a Quinnipiac student in Hamden.

Public Safety reminds students to lock all doors and windows and keep an outside light on at night when possible. There will be extra patrols in the area.
