Student robbed by armed offender in Loop


A DePaul student was robbed by an offender who said he had a gun in the Loop Tuesday evening, according to a Public Safety alert. 

The student said he was robbed at the Bank of America branch ATM at 201 S. State St. around 7 p.m. by a man who directed him to deposit a check, withdraw $300 and give it to him. The man told the student he had a gun and fled with an accomplice standing outside, according to the alert.

This is the third alert issued by Public Safety this week pertaining to a Loop crime. On Monday, a student was assaulted in the afternoon and a Dunkin Donuts employee was threatened by a customer with a knife in the early morning.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chicago Police Department or Public Safety.
