Masked gunman robs 2 Washington University students

(KMOV) -- For the second time this week Washington University students have become the victims of violent attacks.

Early Wednesday morning, a masked gunman held up two undergraduate students on the north edge of campus along a walkway that connects Washington University to the U. City Loop.

The students told police the man had a small handgun and demanded cash. They gave him some money and then he ran away. They were not hurt.

On Monday, a 20-year-old woman told police she was raped and robbed at knife-point on Skinker Boulevard.

Police do not believe the attacks are related.

No one has been arrested in either case.
