A University of Oregon student has reported that he was robbed on Alder Street near 16th Avenue, at around 1:00 a.m. Friday.
The student reports he was walking south on the sidewalk on the west side of Alder Street, south of 16th Avenue, when he was approached by two white males. One man grabbed the student's arms from behind while the other threatened to hit the student and demanded his wallet. The student handed over his wallet, and the man also grabbed the student's cell phone, and ordered the student to run away. The student fled to campus.
