Northwestern University police say a male NU student was robbed while walking in the 2000 block of Ridge Avenue late Saturday night.

Police say that at 11:26 p.m. the student was approached from behind by two men. The men implied they had a knife and demanded money from the victim. The student gave them $40 and they fled in an unknown direction.

Police say the student was not injured and no weapons were displayed. The victim could not provide a detailed description of the assailants.
