MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The president of the University of Minnesota plans to step up police patrols following a rash of robberies and assaults on and near campus.

President Eric Kaler announced the new security measures in a campus-wide letter Tuesday.

Kaler says the crimes are "troubling and disturbing."

On Monday, a man approached a woman in Anderson Hall, a classroom building on the West Bank campus in Minneapolis, and showed her a gun before demanding her backpack and then fleeing. He remained at large on Tuesday.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports Kaler said he met last week with the chiefs of the University of Minnesota and Minneapolis Police Departments to talk about ways to enhance campus security.
