'Brazen' Gunpoint Robbery in Berkeley Dorm

Community startled by bold on-campus crime.


UC-Berkeley police are searching for two suspects in a "brazen" gunpoint robbery in one of the school's dorms, the Daily Californian reports.

At 12:31 a.m. Tuesday, two men entered the dorm suite's kitchen through an open window and demanded the two students, both heavyweight crew team members, hand over their wallets and laptops, police said. The pair made away with one laptop and one wallet.

"We're very concerned at the brazenness and boldness of these criminals, that they entered and made contact with the students," said a police official. "It's very disconcerting." The police currently have no suspects.
