Western student Nick North was hanging out in his dorm room in Pierce Ford Tower when he heard a knock at his door. Being cautious, he looked through his peephole and didn't see anyone. He decided to open the door anyway. Suddenly, he was face to face with a gun.

North says a man pushed his way into the room, held the gun to North's head and demanded money.

North says he gave the robber $150 that he had been saving. The thief then fled.

This is the second such incidence on Western's campus this semester. Western police have a suspect in North's case and are still investigating.

They have no suspect in the robbery that occurred in Poland Hall in September. No one was injured in either robbery.
