Police on Long Island are investigating whether three people arrested for robbery are linked to a group targeting students at Hofstra University.

Cops say two men and a woman have been charged with an armed robbery in Uniondale earlier this week.

According to authorities, twelve people walking at night have been robbed at gunpoint in Uniondale and Hempstead in the past month.

They say four of the victims are students at the university.
