U of M: 3 masked men attempt armed robbery on campus

It happened early Sunday morning on the Twin Cities campus.

Authorities at the University of Minnesota are alerting the public to an attempted armed — and masked — robbery on the Twin Cities campus this weekend. 

According to an update from the school's public safety department, it happened early Sunday morning in the area of East River Parkway:

U of M Twin Cities: Attempted Robbery at 12:45 am near Harvard Street and Delaware. 3 males wearing face masks, 1 had a handgun. Suspects driving a silver sedan. Use caution. Updates and safety tips at z.umn.edu/alerts

No other details about the incident have been released, so it's not yet clear why the suspects drove off in a silver sedan before completing the robbery.

This comes just three days after another attempted robbery on campus; there were at least four such incidents in November.
