MADISON, Wis. -

Three men entered a home near the University of Wisconsin campus and robbed the two people inside, prompting campus police to issue an alert to students.

Police were called to the 400 block of West Mifflin Street at 7:10 p.m. on Sunday for a report of a robbery.

The victims, a 20-year-old man and 22-year-old woman, told police the three men entered the home through an unlocked door and demanded the victims’ phones and wallet and ordered them into a closet before fleeing on foot. One of the men was armed with a handgun, according to the victims.

Officers tracked the victim’s phones to an area nearby where the robbers had discarded them. A K-9 was called to assist in a search of the area.

An alert was issued to UW students living in the area and was later lifted.
