Another college-aged person was robbed Wednesday evening in Duluth.

The robbery was the seventh of a college-age victim reported to police since September, and the third this week.

Investigators believe the same two suspects may be behind all of the robberies.

"One or two black males, black puffy jacket and one was wearing a black hoodie," Duluth Police Sgt. Leigh Wright said.

She said the one in the puffy jacket has been described by several victims as about 25 years old, about 180 pounds and between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet tall.

In Wednesday's robbery, two suspects robbed a man of his backpack. The incident happened near Partridge Street and Kenwood Avenue about 8:30 p.m.

Police have asked officials at the University of Minnesota Duluth and the College of St. Scholastica to warn their students of the attacks.

Anyone with any information on these robberies is asked to call the Duluth Violent Crimes Unit at 730-5050.

Duluth Police recommend that people should avoid walking alone, late at night, or in areas that are not well-lit. For personal safety, if you are approached by an assailant, it is best to comply with their demands. Report any suspicious individuals to 911.
