Four JHU students robbed on Move-In day

Four female undergraduates at Johns Hopkins University were robbed at gunpoint as they walked through the campus Wednesday night, the school's move-in day for the fall semester, according to a security alert from the school. 

The victims were walking southbound in the 3500 block of N. Charles St. at about 11:40 p.m. when two suspects approached. One of them pointed a silver-colored revolver and demanded undisclosed property, which they turned over, the crime alert says. 

The suspects then ran to a parked vehicle in the 3500 block of Greenway and drove the wrong way on a one-way street toward University Parkway. 

Police described both suspects as black males, between the ages of 16 and 18, standing about 5-foot-6 and wearing blue hooded sweatshirts and blue jeans. Both had black bandanas covering their faces. The vehicle was described only as a small, dark-colored vehicle. 

The neighborhoods west of the Johns Hopkins campus, including Wyman Park, Hampden and Roland Park, where hit by a wave of robberies beginning in late July, and police announced they had arrested several suspects. 

Anyone with information about the robbery should call Baltimore Police Northern District at 410-396-2455.
