PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia police say a Temple University student who was on her way home Monday night was forced inside an off-campus apartment where she was duct taped along with three other women and robbed.

The robbery happened around 7:30 p.m. on the 1800 block of N. 18th Street.

Police say two of the men were armed.

Once the student was forced inside, police say the men duct taped her and three other women who were already inside and stole computer equipment, cell phones and $400 in cash.

The suspects then left in an unknown direction. Police say one of the men was wearing a red sweatshirt.

The victims, who are 21 to 22-years of age, were not injured.

Police say they have not made any arrests.

An advisory sent to students from Temple University urged them to use caution in the area.
