Cell phones, cash among items stolen from the students.

Four female students were robbed after three men forced their way into the students’ off-campus apartment Monday night, police said.

Around 7:30 p.m., police were called to the 1800 block of North 18th Street where three men, two of which were armed, followed one of the roommates home and forced their way into the second-floor apartment before they allegedly bound all four roommates with duct tape and robbed them, according to police. Computers, cell phones,  an unknown amount of money and credit cards were taken from the apartment, police said.

No injuries were reported and no arrests were made as of Monday night. The university sent out a TU Advisory about the incident at 9:17 p.m.

Anyone with information should contact the Philadelphia Police Department at 215-686-3093.
