A man armed with an AR-15 rifle robbed a person a gunpoint early Sunday in Berkeley.
The gunman took a backpack and laptop at about 1:45 a.m. near the intersection of Benvenue Avenue and Dwight Way, according to a campus alert issued by the University of California, Berkeley. The robber then got into a “newer style” white pickup with a covered bed that was driven by someone else, and the pair sped away.
No injuries were reported in the campus alert.
Anyone with information about the robbery can call Berkeley police at (510) 981-5900.
