CINCINNATI -- At least four University of Cincinnati students have been robbed in the past 24 hours.
Police said the latest armed robbery happened at about 8 p.m. Wednesday night Ohio Avenue and Parker Street.
Officers said the student was jogging when he was robbed at gunpoint by two people. The robbers took the student’s cellphone.
The first robber was described as a black male in his late teens. He was described as 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, and armed with a handgun.
The victim was not able to describe the second robber.
Police said one student was robbed at gunpoint in the 3200 block of Vine Street.
Shortly thereafter, two more students were robbed near Brookline and Jefferson avenues.
Investigators said they are unsure if the robberies are related.
In the first two incidents, police said they are looking for a heavyset black man, described as about 25 years old, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.
