According to a crime alert, three individuals — two 18-year-old males and one 20-year-old female with unknown affiliations to campus — were approached by a man. He grabbed a backpack from one of the victims and allegedly displayed a firearm. The man then demanded their property, allegedly took three backpacks and fled on foot. The robbery occurred at about 3:40 a.m.
The three individuals were not harmed during the encounter. UCPD and Berkeley Police Department checked the area but were unable to locate the man.
The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s, 5-foot-8 in height with a thin to medium build and wearing a brown-orange camouflage sweatshirt.
