U.C. Police Advisory: Cal Student Led to ATM, Robbed

The 20-year-old female was walking around Sproul Plaza Wednesday afternoon, when she was approached by robbers.

University of California Berkeley Police are looking for three men connected to a robbery on campus that happened last week.

A 20-year-old woman was walking near lower Sproul Plaza at around 2:55 p.m. Wednesday, when she was approached by a man, who identified himself as "Kody," according to a U.C. police report.

Kody asked the woman if she wanted to buy a magazine subscription. When she declined, two more men accompanied Kody and the three began to threaten the woman, the report said.

They then walked the woman to the Golden Bear Cafe ATM and the woman withdrew money for the men. The suspects then walked towards Sather Gate. The woman was not harmed, the report said.

Kody is described as a white man in his early twenties, with a thin build and short hair. There is no description of the suspect's two companions at this time.

Doesn't the ATM in question have a security video system? Any actual pictures of these creeps?
