(WBBM NEWSRADIO) – Two DePaul University students were robbed over the weekend on the Lincoln Park campus, authorities said.

The incident occurred around 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the 1200 block of West Belden as two students – a male and a female – were walking home. Several men jumped out of a white Kia SUV and demanded the students’ belongings.

A purse was taken from the female student, and the offenders punched the male in the face and used pepper spray before fleeing the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call DePaul Public Safety at (773) 325-7777 or Chicago Police.
