Aggravated robbery reported in Dinkytown

The incident occurred near the intersection of 8th Street Southeast and 15th Avenue Southeast.

An aggravated robbery was reported Sunday evening near the University of Minnesota campus in Dinkytown.

According to a SAFE-U notification from the university, two male suspects assaulted a victim and took her purse near the intersection of 8th Street Southeast and 15th Avenue Southeast at 4:51 p.m.

The suspects got into a gray Nissan sedan and left the scene.

The two suspects were described as wearing dark hoodies, one with the Nike logo.

The incident happened just a few hours after another incident that prompted a SAFE-U alert, which means the school deemed it an active threat to the campus area. 

This happened at 14th Avenue Southwest and University at 2:35 a.m., which saw a man aged 30-40 point a gun at a victim before fleeing the area.

He was wearing a black jacket and was driving a black Infinity M35 sedan.
