A University of Michigan student was robbed at gunpoint early Saturday morning, according to a crime alert sent out by the Division of Public Safety and Security. The armed robbery, the alert details, took place around midnight south of Central Campus on Tappan and Oakland streets. 

The student reported to Ann Arbor police he was approached by a man — clad in a red bandana — exiting a gray four-door car with a "long gun." The suspect stole the victim's wallet and phone and fled the scene in the car. The victim did not suffer any injuries. 

Saturday's bulletin is the fourth crime alert in the last three weeks — though DPSS canceled an alert on aggravated assault earlier this week — including three robberies in sum: an unarmed robbery on Jan. 27, and two armed robberies on the night of Jan. 25.

As of Saturday morning, either Ann Arbor nor University police have released details concerning suspects in the cases.
