A woman was robbed at gunpoint near Fresno City College on the evening of Jan. 23, according to Lt. Steve Card of the Fresno Police Department.

Card said the woman was in the area of Weldon and Wishon avenues, northwest of campus, when a Hispanic man brandished a handgun just after 8 p.m, taking her backpack and other items.

The man then fled the scene in a silver Honda sedan, Card said. Police are investigating, but no arrests have been made.
