A male student reported being robbed by four black males in hoodies on the corner of Browning Avenue and Somerset Street on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 16, according to an emergency alert sent out to the College community.
The alleged perpetrators then fled in the direction of campus, the alert said.
At 8:44 p.m., the victim reported that he was walking along Browning Avenue when he was approached by four men who looked to be 16 to 18 years old. The four men then demanded the victim’s wallet and cell phone, according to The Trentonian.
After being approached, the victim turned over his wallet and cell phone to the hooded suspects. The suspects then fled on foot down Browning Avenue toward Green Lane, The Trentonian reported.
“No injuries were sustained by the victim and no weapons were used or displayed, but the victim believed the perpetrators may have been armed,” according to the text message and email sent around 9:40 p.m. on the night of Oct. 16.
The suspects threatened to pull a gun on the victim, but never exposed one, Lt. Rocco Marruca told The Trentonian.
Anyone with information or who has witnessed suspicious behavior is encouraged to contact Campus Police.
The campus-wide text message concluded by saying, “If there are further disruptions, we will notify campus.”
