A student was the victim of an armed robbery on campus on Sunday, July 4, at 3:01 pm, according to the University of California Police Department.

The victim, a 23 year old summer school student, was walking on the service road between Minor Hall and the Women’s Faculty Club, listening to her iPod when two males approached her. They demanded her property and one of the suspects held a knife to the victim’s stomach. The victim complied and gave the suspects her iPod, iPhone and wallet.
