The University sent the message out around noon on Sunday.

The University of Minnesota reported in a SAFE-U alert a robbery and kidnapping occurred at 1 a.m. Sunday in the Superblock area. 

UMPD reported just after noon an individual was followed from Sally’s Saloon on Washington Avenue to Superblock and was forced into a small sedan by three males. The victim was robbed at gunpoint and then dropped off between Superblock and I-94/Cretin Ave/Vandalia exit in St. Paul, according to the alert. The suspects were wearing all black and remained unidentified. 

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

Clarification: An earlier headline in this story said the individual was a University student. That detail is unknown as of Monday morning.
