    UC Berkeley students walk through Sproul Plaza on the UC Berkeley campus April 23, 2012 in Berkeley, California.

    A University of California at Berkeley student was robbed at knifepoint on campus late Wednesday night, according to police.

    The armed robbery occurred at 10:05 p.m. in Observatory Hill, police said. A 20-year-old man was walking west on a path from North Gate and approaching Haviland Hall when two suspects approached him from behind, one with a knife.

    According to police, the suspects took the victim's backpack, which had his laptop inside.

    Police believe the suspects are connected to an earlier attempted armed robbery that occurred in Berkeley on Ellsworth Street between Durant Avenue and Channing Way.

    Anyone with information on the case is asked to call UC police at (510) 642-0472 or (510) 642-6760 after business hours.
