BALTIMORE (WMAR) — An investigation is underway after two Johns Hopkins University affiliated students were robbed on campus at gunpoint.

Johns Hopkins Security officials said it happened on Tuesday just after midnight on the Homewood Campus at the intersection of Guilford Avenue and E. 32nd Street.

Three male suspects reportedly approached the victims and stole their cellphones, backpacks, wallets, and credit cards. At least one of the males was armed with a silver revolver.

Neither victim sustained any injuries.

The suspects are described as being in their late teens to early twenties. One of them was seen armed with a gun and wearing a gray zip-up hoodie while another was wearing a blue shirt with half sleeves.

Earlier this month, the Maryland State Legislature passed The Community Safety and Strengthening Act, also known as Senate Bill 793 that authorizes JHU to establish their own private police department. The bill is currently awaiting Governor Larry Hogan's signature.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact Campus Security at 410-516-7777 or 911.
