Students on the campus of UIC are being warned to be on alert after two students were robbed in less than a week.
Wednesday, a thief grabbed a student’s cell phone and id in the 1200 block of West Flournoy.
A second person knocked the student to the ground and then both suspects ran off.
Another UIC student was attacked Saturday morning in the 600 block of West Roosevelt.
The student was threatened with a weapon and his laptop was stolen.
UIC police say similar robberies also occurred last September and October.
