The University of Akron Police Department is investigating a robbery and an attempted robbery.
An alert sent to UA students and employees states that an attempted armed robbery was reported Thursday night around 9:45 in a parking lot on Spicer Street.
An apparently completed robbery was reported about 15 minutes later near the intersection of East Exchange Street and Kling Street. Police say both complainants described two robbers and the incidents otherwise have similarities. Only a vague description of the robbers is available.
It's not clear what was stolen, but nobody was hurt.
