The University Department of Public Safety issued crime alerts for three area robberies between Friday and Tuesday.

On Friday, two female students were walking near Hill Street and East University Avenue at around 2:30 a.m. when they were approached by two men. One man struck one of the students in the face and took her purse. Both men fled on foot.

Witnesses described the suspects as black males with short hair. One suspect wore a gray T-shirt and baggy jeans, while the second wore a white T-shirt with jeans.

On Saturday, a man walking with friends between Willard and Hill Street was approached by three black males at around 2:30 a.m. The group asked for the man’s money, and once the man had given it to them, they fled on foot.

The first suspect was described as clean-shaven with short dreadlocks and around 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was also described as wearing a red polo shirt with thin horizontal yellow stripes, jeans and a red baseball hat. Another suspect was described as being around 5 feet 10 inches. The suspect was also wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans.

On Tuesday, the crime wave peaked with an armed robbery at the New York Pizza Depot on East William. A man entered the back door of NYPD at around 3:47 a.m. The man pulled out a small firearm and took around $2,500 before leaving. No employees were injured.

Witnesses described the suspect as a white, athletic-built male with blond hair, about 27 years old and around 6 feet 1 inch tall. The man was also wearing a blue bandana, which covered his face, a black sweatshirt with black writing, and dark blue athletic pants.

Lt. Myron Blackwell of the Ann Arbor Police Department said that all three cases are currently still under investigation. It has not yet been determined if any of the crimes are related.
