Bow Street armed robbery is reported

On Dec. 21, at approximately 4:30 a.m., three Harvard Business School students were the victims of an armed robbery at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Bow Street. The victims reported that two males approached them from behind, produced two small handguns, and proceeded to take the wallet of one of the victims. One of the other victims was repeatedly struck in the head with a handgun when they were slow in handing over their bag. The Cambridge Police Department (CPD), Harvard University Police Department (HUPD), and the Massachusetts State Police searched the area with negative results.

The suspects were described as black males in their early 20s. The first suspect was described as 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a thin build, and was wearing jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt. The second suspect, described as 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10 inches tall, was wearing a black coat. One of the handguns used in the robbery was silver in color.
