Student Robbed, Possibly at Gunpoint, Near UWM Campus

The victim told police a suspect stuck a hard object in his back and told him to empty his pockets Sunday night.

A University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student was robbed while walking in the 3500 block of North Murray Avenue Sunday night, police say.

The student told police he was walking to a friend's house from the college campus at about 8:40 p.m. when an unknown suspect approached him, stuck a hard object in his back, implying there was a firearm, and told him to empty his pockets.

The student handed over his property and continued walking north on Murray Avenue, following the robber's orders to not turn around.

Police wouldn't release information on the property taken in the robbery, because it's an ongoing investigation.
