A UC Berkeley student was the victim of an armed robbery on the east side of the Greek Theater on Tuesday night.
The 18-year-old student was near the Bowles Hall parking lot at about 11:20 p.m. when two men approached him from behind, according to a UCPD crime alert released Wednesday. One of the men allegedly pressed a handgun against the student’s stomach and asked for his property, after which the student gave up his cell phone.
