SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) - Four University of California, Santa Cruz students were robbed and assaulted in a campus dorm room.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports (https://bayareane.ws/1P9Lotz ) Wednesday that UCSC Police Chief Nader Oweis says police believe the attack was an isolated incident.

Three suspects remain at large.

The trouble started at midnight Tuesday when a student was walking alone in downtown Santa Cruz and approached three men and a woman. A fight ensued and his money and cellphone were taken. He was forced into the car and driven to a dorm room of a friend. There, three others were assaulted and robbed.

The four students had injuries that were not life threatening, including pain and facial bruises.

They were treated by Santa Cruz firefighters and were not transported to a hospital.

Oweis say investigators are trying to find surveillance footage of the attackers.
