Students on edge after string of armed robberies near the U
A rash of armed robberies near the University of Minnesota campus in recent weeks has shaken students easing into the spring semester and renewed concerns about security on and around the campus.
The most recent attack occurred in the early morning hours Sunday, when three men wearing hoodies robbed a man who was walking in the area of SE. 8th Street and 12th Avenue SE., near campus. Police revealed few details about the three male suspects, but said the latest robbery was unlike a string of earlier armed stickups in the area.
