One suspect struck the victim in the head. The other 3 males began to hit victim as well while the female videotaped. The group stole victim's bag and started to walk towards Harbor Point Apartments.

The victim followed the five until one of the men reached into the woman's back and showed off the handgun she was carrying.

UMass police are investigating the incident because the university now owns the mall property.
