Local Man Robbed Near Langdell Hall

A Cambridge resident was robbed at gunpoint outside Langdell Library late Sunday night, police said.

The victim, who lives on Wendell St., was reportedly followed to the Law School from a Bank of Boston ATM in the Square. He was not hurt during the incident, police said.

Police refused to release the victim's name and said it was unclear whether he is affiliated with the University.

Harvard Police Chief Paul E. Johnson said the assailants were two Black men between the ages of 16 and 18. He said both were dressed in dark, hooded sweatshirts. One man is 5'9" and the other is 5'7", Johnson said.

One suspect carried a small caliber handgun, Johnson said. Neither man has been arrested.


Police said that the men began following the victim at the teller machine, but waited until he had entered the darker and less busy Law School to accost him.
