Woman robbed at gunpoint near Seattle University

During the noon hour today, an SU student reported to Campus Public Safety that she was robbed near campus last night by an unknown male who displayed a handgun. The student reported to Seattle Police last night that she was walking home at approximately 8 p.m. to an off-campus apartment near the intersection of Spring St. and Boylston Ave. (two blocks northwest of campus). An unknown male then walked up behind her and told her to give him her purse while holding a handgun. The male took the purse and ran from the scene. The suspect was described as an African-American male, approximately 22-24 years of age, approximately 5?2? to 5?4?, and wearing a black, puffy, knee-length jacket with a fur-lined hood. Seattle Police Department conducted an area-wide search but the suspect was not observed.
