On Tuesday at 12:30 a.m., two men entered and robbed an apartment on the 400 block of North Thayer Street, near the School of Nursing. Five residents, who are University of Michigan students, were present, according to a crime alert issued at 6:39 a.m. by the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security.

According to a press release from the Ann Arbor Police Department, the men approached the house and asked if they could charge their cell phone. Once they were inside, one man pulled out a handgun and demanded credit cards, computers and cash. Though several items were stolen, no one was hurt and no shots were fired.

It is unknown in which direction the men fled from the house, and a K-9 track was unsuccessful.

The suspects were described as each being approximately 6’0” to 6’5” and 200lbs.

Detectives are still interviewing victims and are hoping to get more information in the coming days. Detective Lieutenant Matthew Lige said as more information becomes available, AAPD will inform the campus community.
