A man was robbed on the University of Minnesota’s East Bank campus Saturday.

The robbery happened around 8:45 p.m., according to a University of Minnesota Police Department timely warning.

The victim was walking in the courtyard between Williamson Hall and the Nolte Center when the suspect ran behind him and pushed him. The suspect implied he had a gun and told him to give him his belongings.

The victim handed over his phone to the suspect, who fled across Northrop Plaza, according to a Sunday campus-wide email.

The suspect may have left the area in a silver Ford Mustang parked at Morrill Hall, according to the report.

Anyone with information is asked to call UMPD at 612-624-COPS(2677).
