Crimes happen on college campuses all the time, but you don’t hear about armed robbers tying up their victims every day.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports:

Vassar students bound in armed robbery on campus: College

Vassar College says a group of its students were bound and their campus townhouse was burglarized on Halloween night.

The school said it is increasing patrols on campus and requesting additional police presence in the area of its townhouses, in the wake of the incident.

According to a release from Vassar’s Safety and Security department, around 2 a.m. Friday, two male intruders entered the house through an unlocked door, one with what appeared to be a handgun. The department said the men bound the students and searched the house.

After the intruders left the home the students ran outside and flagged down a Safety and Security vehicle that was driving through the area, according to the release.
