Three Xavier Freshmen robbed at gunpoint off-campus

CINCINNATI (FOX 19) -- Monday night three Xavier freshman were robbed at gunpoint after walking off-campus along Dana Avenue to a UDF.

Campus officials say the trio were walking back to their dorm on campus when three suspects approached them asking for cigarettes.

After that, two of the suspects pulled guns and demanded their belongings. Descriptions on the robbers are vague. Cincinnati Police are investigating.

XU office of public relations director, Debora Del Valle, says the students are ok. She says the University already hired an additional police officer to patrol with their additional buildings on campus. That officer will also patrol the area between Xavier and the Dana Ave. Montgomery Rd. intersection.
