The victim, who was not a student, was approached around 3 a.m. by four men in Porthole Alley just off Franklin Street. The suspects physically assaulted the victim and took his cell phone.

When UNC police arrived, two suspects fled the scene in a silver vehicle, and the two others tried to flee on foot but were caught by police.
