LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- University of Louisville Police are investigating after an armed robbery on Monday morning.

According to UofL Police, a student was robbed around 5:15 a.m. at The Retreat, an off-campus apartment complex.

In a memo that was sent to students and staff, the university says the suspect got into an apartment at The Retreat and robbed and assaulted the woman. 

The university says the victim has minor injures from the robbery. The suspect, who police believe was also involved in other off-campus incidents, fled the scene before police arrived.

The university says any descriptions police received of the suspect "have been vague" as the suspect was wearing a mask. 

In response to the assault, LMPD has added officers around campus and UofL affiliated housing during the evening and early morning hours, according to the memo. 

Police are asking the public to be aware of their surroundings and keep their doors and windows locked.
