BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Two Johns Hopkins University students reported being robbed at gunpoint by six juveniles near the Baltimore Museum of Art late Monday evening.
The two said they were walking toward campus at Art Museum Drive and Charles Street when they were approached from behind by the six suspects. One of the juveniles had a handgun, they said.
One of the students gave the suspects her cell phone, then the suspects ran away- last seen running south into the Wyman Park Deli.
No one was physically injured in the incident.
Baltimore Police and Campus Safety and Security officers responded and canvassed the area.
There are no physical descriptions of the six juveniles yet. Baltimore police said the person robbed was a 20-year-old woman.
Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus Safety and Security said an alert went out Monday night for the incident.
Investigators said the suspects were last seen running south into the Wyman Park Dell.
Students told WJZ it’s unusual for a robbery like this to occur so close to campus.
“Does that kind of thing happen a lot around here? I think in terms of armed robberies this close to campus, not so much,” Kendall Freed said.
“Within this little few block radius, you don’t hear much happening to students,” Adrian Tabassi said. “But this close to campus, no- not really. I think that’s the closest I’ve ever heard.”
Now, some said they’ll be taking extra precautions when walking through the area.
“I think I’m going to be a little more careful about walking around by myself at night,” one student told WJZ.
Baltimore City Police said they are still continuing their investigation.
