Two women were robbed at gunpoint Monday night at the intersection of Channing Way and College Avenue.

At about 10:55 p.m., the women were walking southbound on College when a car pulled over ahead of them. A male exited the passenger side of the car - described as a silver or white four-door hatchback - pointed a gun at the victims and demanded their wallets, according to a UCPD crime alert.

One victim gave the suspect her wallet and the other was not carrying one. The suspect then allegedly fled westbound on Channing. Neither of the victims was injured, the alert states.

The suspect is described as a male in his late 20s, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, 180 pounds and was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head and baggy jeans.
