A woman was robbed of her cellphone at gunpoint on College Avenue Thursday.
According to a UCPD crime alert, the 19-year-old female was listening to music on her iPhone at around 9:28 p.m. near the intersection of College and Parker Street when a male suspect ran up to her from behind. The suspect then allegedly pointed a gun at the victim and demanded her phone. The victim complied, and the suspect fled westbound on Parker, according to the alert.
The victim was not harmed, and though officers from Berkeley Police Department did a check of the area, they were unable to locate the suspect or the iPhone, according to the alert.
