Two University of Minnesota research assistants were robbed early Wednesday morning just north of Willey Hall, according to a crime alert sent to the University community Wednesday afternoon. 

Neither was injured, but the two suspects took a cell phone and wallets containing credit cards and cash.

The two research assistants were walking east when they were approached by two men. One, showing a gun, demanded they lie on the ground and give up their valuables. 

University of Minnesota police are investigating this crime.
