An armed robbery at Buffalo Wild Wings on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor  has students on edge and police searching for two men.
 
"It's a little concerning," said Kelly Fletcher, a college sophomore living nearby. 
 
Unfortunately, Ann Arbor Police said there is no description of the suspects, who were both dressed in hoodies and covered their faces with masks. 
 
"That was really surprising, usually it's (crime) is farther away, but for this, the first time it's so close," Serin joice said. 
 
Joice, a junior, also lives steps from Buffalo Wild Wings where police said the two men entered the location from a rear door in the back alley. 
 
Lt. Matthew Lige, with the Ann Arbor Police Department, confirmed one of the robbers brandished a firearm. The two got away with about $2,000.
 
Police also said the robbery happened so quickly, some employees closing in the front of the store around 2 a.m. Saturday morning had no idea they had been robbed. 
 
Lt. Lige stated police are hoping tips can lead to an arrest. Meanwhile, students here on campus say they'll remain extra cautious until police solve this case.
