A 28-year-old male was the victim of a robbery via threat early Thursday morning on the ground level of the Upper Hearst Parking Structure.

The victim, a UC Berkeley Summer Sessions student, was walking to his parked vehicle in the parking structure at 2:25 a.m. when he was approached by two suspects, according to a UCPD crime alert.

The first suspect was allegedly walking while the second suspect was allegedly riding a bicycle towards the victim. According to the alert, the first suspect asked the victim what items the victim possessed and reached towards his own waistband, as if he possessed a weapon under his clothing.

UCPD was not able to locate the suspects.
