A UC Berkeley student was the victim of an armed robbery on the pathway between North Gate and University Drive Tuesday morning.
About 7:13 a.m., the victim was walking northbound in the area when two males approached him from behind, according to a UCPD crime alert released Tuesday. The two perpetrators demanded the victim’s property, and one showed him the handle of a handgun in his pocket.
The victim complied, and the perpetrators fled toward Hearst Avenue. The victim went to UCPD’s lobby in Sproul Hall 25 minutes later to report the incident.
The victim was not physically injured during the encounter. UCPD searched the area but was unable to locate the perpetrators.
According to the UCPD crime alert, the perpetrators are described as:
Perpetrator #1 – A black male, 18 to 20 years of age, 5’10,” with a medium build and some facial hair on chin, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants.
Perpetrator #2 – A black male, 20 to 23 years of age, 6’0,” with a slender build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants, carrying a black handgun.
