Around 2:00 A.M. Saturday morning a Notre Dame student was approached by three men in a silver sedan on Notre Dame Avenue between the Morris Inn and Holy Cross Drive. One of the men got out of the vehicle and instructed the student to come with them. They demanded money and took the student to a gas station and a grocery store so he could get cash for them. They then brought the student back to campus. No gun was seen, but it was implied that at least one of the three men had a gun. The suspects were described as three black males wearing dark clothing. They had no facial hair or visible marks or tattoos. One of the men had dreadlocks. One of the men was about 6 feet tall, medium build. All three appeared to be between 20-23 years old.
