In a multi-city crime spree lasting barely an hour, four teenagers held up two Harvard students and two Cantabrigians at gunpoint last night.
None of the victims were injured, and early this morning the suspects remained at large.
The first robbery, around 7 p.m., occurred at the intersection of Harvard and Lee Streets., about seven blocks east of the Yard. Moments later, the robbers struck again, this time at Broadway Street and Dana Street.
The Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) received a call about a third robbery at 8:19 p.m. from a third victim, a female undergraduate.
She told dispatchers that while walking along the pathway between Lowell House and Rosovsky Hall leading onto Plympton St. she was stopped and robbed. Rosovsky Hall houses Harvard Hillel.
Her wallet, Harvard ID and room keys were stolen.
The final robbery of the evening occurred in Allston around 8:30 p.m., when a male undergraduate walking between Kresge Hall and MacArthur Hall at the Business School was robbed also at gunpoint. He was robbed of 10 English pounds.
The suspects fled down the East Drive of the Business School towards the on-campus home of the Business School dean , said Peggy A. McNamara, HUPD's spokesperson.
