There have been two attempted armed robberies on the University of Hartford campus in the last month and police are looking into whether they are connected.
On Thursday afternoon, university leaders asked students to stay indoors or seek immediate shelter and lock doors after a man wearing a ski mask and holding a gun entered a room in the Stevens residence hall in B complex and attempted to rob a student.
The student managed to push the intruder out and was not hurt.
Police believe the person they are looking for left campus in a gold or silver Chevy and headed south on Bloomfield Avenue.
On Saturday April 16, two men held a student and his girlfriend at gunpoint and demanded drugs.
That incident was also at B complex and two University of Hartford students suspected of facilitating an armed attack at a dorm were arrested, but the two men who actually committed the home invasion remain at large.
Anyone with information is asked to call public safety at (860) 768-7985.
