There has been a dangerous start to the school year for students at UC Berkeley. A string of crimes have been reported on or near campus, including two armed robberies and several sexual assaults.

U.C. Berkeley police department officials say they often see a spike in crime around the start of school year due to the sudden influx of new and returning students.

Arrests have been made in each of the sexual assault cases.

Classes resumed just one week ago.
