Buffalo State student robbed at gunpoint

Buffalo State College

Buffalo Police and Buffalo State College Police are investigating an armed robbery Monday night near the campus.

A female student was walking toward her off-campus apartment when she was accosted near Rees and Bradley Streets by two black males wearing hoodies.

One of the suspects displayed a small black semi-automatic handgun. They then took her bag containing her wallet and phone.

The suspects then ran west on Bradley Street and north on Hawley Street before getting into a dark-colored car and driving away in an unknown direction.

The victim was unharmed and College Police notified the campus community of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call to text the anonymous Buffalo Police TIP-CALL line at 847-2255.
