MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

University of Memphis leaders want you to know about an attempted robbery that took place near the campus Sunday night.  That's why they issued a personal safety alert to students, staff and visitors.

They say the attempted robbery happened near the campus about 11p.m. Sunday night.  Investigators say three (3) men were walking through the parking lot near Southern and Houston when a gray 1980's four door Cadillac pulled up beside them.  They say a passenger flashed what appeared to be a gun and demanded their cell phones.  They say all three (3) took off and nothing was taken. 

They are not sure where who the men in the car are.

University Police are investigating along with the Memphis Police Department.
