Armed Robbers Hold Up 3 More College Students

For the second time in a week, two armed men have held up University of Hartford students.

Last week, it was at the dorms. Monday night, it was at a rental property on Bloomfield Avenue, which is known as a place where University of Hartford student live.

Police said two armed, masked men held up three students Monday night. One of the students said a robber hit him with a gun.

The three students escaped and reported the incident from a neighbor's house. The robbers escaped through a window.

The incident comes four days after two armed men got into a dormitory and tried to hold up two students.

University of Hartford Public Safety is working with police in Hartford, West Hartford and Bloomfield to see if they can establish a connection between the two incidents.
