The University Police were alerted Saturday afternoon of a robbery that occurred at 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning in the 1300 block of Wertland Street. 

Two University students said they were assaulted and robbed near the parking garage on that block. They reported that they and approximately seven unknown individuals were involved in the altercation, and that the suspects fled the scene in a green Toyota Highlander. Both students were injured and the suspects also stole one of their cell phones.

Charlottesville Police are investigating the incident.

This is the second reported robbery in the span of a week, as a student was assaulted and robbed near Nau Hall on September 14.

Gloria Graham, associate vice president for safety and security, sent an email to the University community detailing the incident, and encouraged anyone with relevant information to contact CPD.

This is a developing story.
