Students and staff at the University of Iowa are on high alert following an incident Sunday night.

A Hawk Alert has been issued on the Iowa City campus, that’s to warn the community about threats to physical safety in emergency situations.

Police say just after 10:00 Sunday night, a cab driver reported he was held at gun point and robbed. The driver handed over all his cash and the suspect ran away.

A similar armed robbery took place two nights before. Friday night, Iowa City police responded to an armed robbery of a cab driver one street over from Sunday’s incident.  Police say the description of the suspect is similar.
