The alleged perpetrator, described by the Division of Public Safety as a lightly-complected black man with curly hair in dark pants and a purple shirt, used a "simulated weapon" to rob someone unaffiliated with Penn. The victim, who was a minor, was not injured, DPS said in an email. 

He was last seen heading east on Walnut Street. DPS said in a follow-up alert around 2:20 p.m. that the area was all clear, with police and security guards remaining in the surrounding vicinity.
