Police are looking for three suspects after an armed robbery in Providence early this morning.

Students from Johnson and Wales University told police that a man had entered their Pembroke Avenue apartment around 5 a.m. this morning.

The suspect was carrying a firearm and held them at gunpoint, ordering them to empty their pockets.

The victims said that a man and a woman assisted in the robbery soon after, filling up duffle bags with items in the apartment.

The first man was described as a Hispanic man with a thin build. The other male was described as white with a heavy build. He was wearing a white t-shirt and shorts. The female suspect was described as Hispanic, wearing a pink tank top and camouflage pants.
