Student victim of attempted robbery at gunpoint

Three incidents involving robbery or theft on or near campus have been reported to University Police since Saturday, according to a flyer distributed by UPD.

A female was involved in an attempted robbery Monday evening at about 11:20 p.m., when she was approached from behind by three subjects at the intersection of 24th and I streets. When one of the men said, “Give me your money,” she refused and the subjects fled.

The female said one subject was armed with what appeared to be a black handgun. All three subjects were described as black males between the ages of 18 to 25 and wearing all black clothing. Metropolitan Police told UPD they had received three other reports of robberies that were committed in other areas of the city on the same evening by what appeared to be the same three individuals.

A male also reported Monday that on Saturday he and a friend were robbed off campus at 10th Street and Massachusetts Avenue. Four black males, who were all carrying firearms, stole the victim’s wallet, which contained $70 in cash, a credit card, a driver’s license and his GWorld.

Additionally, a female reported that she was pick-pocketed in Ivory Tower Saturday.
