LINCOLN PARK — A 26-year-old DePaul University student was robbed at gunpoint on the school's Lincoln Park campus Sunday night, according to police.

The victim was walking west on Webster Avenue between Sheffield and Kenmore Avenues when three men approached him at 10:15 p.m., police said.

One of the suspects pulled a 9 mm handgun from his waistband and pointed it at the student's stomach during the robbery, said Officer John Mirabelli, a Chicago Police spokesman.

The suspects rummaged through the victim's pockets and took his phone, wallet and book bag, police said.

The victim was walking with a 29-year-old woman during the robbery, but she was not robbed or harmed, according to police.

The offenders fled on foot south on Kenmore Avenue from the scene. As of Monday afternoon, none of them were in custody.

DePaul University sent an alert to students about the armed robbery shortly after the student reported the crime Monday morning.

Police described the suspect with the handgun as a black man with dreadlocks and a light complexion between the ages of 20 and 25. He was approximately 5-foot 9-inches tall, 175 pounds and was wearing a white short-sleeve shirt and dark green blue jeans.

The second suspect was a black man between 20 and 25-years-old with a dark complexion, and a crew cut. He was wearing dark color jeans, police said.

The third suspect was between 20 and 25-years-old and had on a dark green long-sleeve shirt.
