CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Police are investigating after four students at Case Western Reserve University were robbed at gunpoint on campus Saturday afternoon.

According to a campus security alert from Case Western Reserve Police Department, it happened just before 4:30 p.m. in Wade Hall Commons, 11451 Juniper Road.

Three males reportedly entered Wade Commons and robbed, at gunpoint, four students who were studying in the Redcats Room.

The males were described as young and most likely teenagers. They were wearing hoodies tied tight to their faces and may have had red bandanas. Witnesses also said they had a silver handgun.

Most of the students' stolen property was recovered by police in a nearby building off-campus.

Police are still investigating, and no arrests have yet been made.

The university released the following statement about the incident Sunday afternoon:

“We are profoundly grateful that no one was physically injured during this crime, but appalled that such an incident could take place within one of our buildings. Our hearts go out to the students involved, and we pledge to them and everyone else on campus to find additional ways to improve safety here.”
