An attempted robbery took place outside of Crossroads Student Dining Hall on Monday about 4:15 p.m.

Two male suspects allegedly approached a male student as he was walking toward the dining hall and proceeded to beat him while attempting to rob him, according to a Nixle alert released Tuesday morning.

The alert added that two other suspects were involved — the third suspect allegedly stood by and called the fourth suspect, who was driving a red four-door vehicle. All four suspects allegedly left the area in the vehicle, leaving the victim with minor injuries.

The Nixle alert listed the suspects as:

  • a Hispanic male, about 18 to 20 years old, with black hair
  • a Black male, about 18 to 20 years old, 5’9” in height with a thin build, wearing a gray jacket
  • a Black male
  • a Hispanic female, about 16 to 18 years old, with a thin build

After searching the area, UCPD and Berkeley Police Department have not located the suspects or the suspects’ vehicle.
