Off-campus robbery reported on Zimple, Lowerline intersection

A female Tulane affiliate reported to Tulane University Police Department that she was robbed at gunpoint at approximately 1:30 a.m. Thursday at the corner of Zimple and Lowerline streets.
The reporting person said she was approached from behind by an unknown man.  She stated that the man put his hand on her shoulder and pointed a gun to her back.
When the reporting person turned around, she said she saw the subject holding an unknown type of semi-automatic weapon. She said the subject stated “Gimme that” and took her iPhone from her hand. She observed a second unknown man standing behind the gunman, whom she said she believed to be his lookout.
Both subjects then fled the scene on foot down Zimple Street towards Pine Street. The reporting person described the suspects as one black male between 18 and 20 years old, approximately 5-foot-6 with a thin build, wearing all black clothing, and another black male in the same age range also wearing all black clothing.
The investigation is ongoing.
