Student robbed at gunpoint in popular college neighborhood

Police say a man robbed a student at gunpoint just before midnight at an apartment complex on Angliana Ave.

The victim was walking between buildings in the gated apartment complex when the suspect confronted him, robbing him of his cell phone and wallet.

Police say just after the robbery, witnesses saw a black Jeep leaving the scene, then crashing into another car on nearby Curry St.

The driver of the Jeep ran away from the crash.

Police say it could only be a coincidence that the hit and run and robbery happened within minutes of each other, in the same area.
