EDGEWATER — A Loyola University student was robbed by two suspects who brandished a silver revolver at 4 a.m. Friday in the 6300 block of North Winthrop Avenue near campus, police said.
"After the offenders stole the victim’s personal property, including his wallet and phone, the offenders fled the scene southbound on Winthrop and were joined by another subject," said Thomas Murray, Loyola's director of campus safety.
The three suspects then hopped into a tan SUV and drove southbound, he said.
Police described one suspect as a dark-complexioned man, 19-21 years old, 5-feet-5-inches tall and 150 pounds. He was wearing a grey hoodie and dark pants.
The second suspect was described as a dark-complexioned man, 19-21 years old, 5-feet-7-inches tall and 200 pounds. He was wearing all dark clothing and was armed with a silver revolver.
The third suspect was described as a dark-complexioned man with brown hair, 19-21 years old and wearing all-dark clothing.
Two other robberies of Loyola students were thwarted in July. In one case, the victim chased down her would-be robber and retrieved her phone. Two days before, police caught another suspect during a foot chase after he shoved a student to the ground and took his phone.
