WORCESTER (CBS) – Becker College Police are out in force after three students were robbed at gunpoint early Saturday morning.

“The students were outside on city streets when a man with a semi-automatic approached them,” Becker College Police Lt. Richard Menard said.

Police say the students were coming back from a function when they were approached by a black man, medium build, wearing a white “hoodie” sweatshirt.

All three students gave the suspect their wallets and the man took off down Cedar Street.

“I never see anything like that happen. I try not to be out late at night,” student Arturo Nito told WBZ-TV’s Paul Burton.

Student Taylor Dufult says she always tries to park close to campus.

“As a student I walk these streets so it makes me nervous, but it also makes me more cautious,” student Katelyn Burns said.

Campus police sent out an e-mail warning students and faculty. Menard recommended students use the college’s safety escort patrol, available 24 hours a day.  Worcester Police are also investigating the incident.
