Two people were robbed on the University of Minnesota West Bank campus on Monday.

The robbery occurred around 4:45 a.m. at the Blegen Hall bus stop on Washington Avenue, according to a University of Minnesota Police Department timely warning.

The victims, who are not affiliated with the University, were approached by a suspect with a knife who demanded their valuables, according to the report.

The suspect was last seen at the bus stop and the victims were unharmed.

This is the third timely warning sent by the University since June. On June 11, a person was attacked with a baseball bat by eight suspects near the University Child Development Center in Como. On June 12, two people were robbed at gunpoint near the 17th Avenue Residence Hall.
