Robbery reported outside of Lakeshore residence hall

A strong armed robbery was reported outside a Lakeshore residence hall Monday night, according to a UW-Madison Police Department Crime Warning.

A single victim was tackled to the ground by two reported assailants. He did not receive significant injuries and refused medical treatment, according to UWPD spokesperson Marc Lovicott.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. near Elizabeth Waters Residence Hall.

The victim—a UW-Madison student—told UWPD his backpack was stolen by the two individuals. They then fled the area, according to the crime warning. The victim knew both suspects, according to Lovicott.

UWPD does not believe either suspect is affiliated with UW-Madison.

Lovicott said there is no further information available at this time, as this is a "very active police investigation."

UPDATE April 4, 2:36 p.m.: This story was updated to include additional information from a UW-Madison Police Department spokesperson.
