A man was reportedly held at gunpoint at the West lower patio of the M building at San Diego City College on Sept. 12 at 11:41 a.m., authorities said.

The victim was approached by a suspect from behind and couldn’t see the suspect as he was told not to turn around, according to a statement from the San Diego Community College District Police Department. The victim heard a noise that sounded like a gun being cocked. The suspect had the victim remove everything from his pockets and told him to walk away.
