RICHMOND, Va. - Virginia Commonwealth University's president says a string of crimes near or on the school's main downtown campus in Richmond is "untenable."

VCU President Michael Rao says in a statement posted on the school's website that he plans to meet with Richmond officials Tuesday and Wednesday. He plans to discuss the need for the city and VCU to continue to work together to prevent crime.

Rao says six robbery-related crimes occurred Tuesday night, including one on the Monroe Park Campus.
