A University of New Haven student is the victim of an armed robbery a week before classes begin and police are investigating.
The victim told police that a man with a gun confronted him as he was walking home at 9:50 p.m. on Wednesday, and stole his iPhone, along with a backpack that held a laptop and a wallet, according to police.
The robbery happened behind 1199 Campbell Avenue, an apartment building that appears to be right off the West Haven campus.
The robber ran off and police said they are looking for a tall, thin man who appears to be between 25 and 35 years old. He is between 6-feet tall and 6-feet-5.
Detectives are investigating.
Campus officials did not comment and referred calls to police.
