Princeton University students robbed at gunpoint

Police are on the lookout for two suspects who robbed three Princeton University students at gunpoint on campus in the early morning hours of April 18, according to Princeton University officials.

The three students were accosted by two assailants near 1939 Hall and robbed of personal items, said Princeton University Spokesman Ben Chang. The students were not injured.

The students alerted the Princeton University Department of Public Safety, which responded along with the Princeton Police Department, Chang said.

The Princeton University campus was locked down while police and Princeton University Department of Public Safety officers searched for the assailants. The lockdown was lifted shortly after 6 a.m., Chang said.

The investigation is ongoing, Chang said.

Princeton University’s primary concern is the safety and well-being of the university community, and extra patrols have been assigned by the Princeton University Department of Public Safety, Chang said.

“We continue to take measures to ensure a safe environment for members of our community,” he said.

The Princeton University community has been asked to remain vigilant, he said. Any suspicious behavior should be reported immediately to the Princeton University Department of Public Safety at 609-258-1000.
