Police at University of California, Berkeley are attempting to locate two suspects who tried to rob a student walking on campus Friday night.
The student was walking on the Grinnell Pathway near Mulford Hall around 8:45 p.m. when two males on bicycles approached and demanded his property, according to UC Berkeley police.
Police said the victim ran to a nearby payphone and yelled that he was calling the police and the two suspects fled.
The victim was uninjured during the encounter.
Campus police searched the area but didn’t find the suspects.
The suspects were both described only as black males believed to be around 14 years old who were each estimated to be roughly 5 feet 8 inches tall with thin builds, according to police.
Both were wearing black hooded sweatshirts at the time of the attempted robbery, police said.
