“Two incidents of students robbed at gunpoint on the PSU campus have been reported to the Campus Public Safety Office.

Shortly after 7:20 p.m. Monday, a male PSU student said he was walking near Shattuck Hall when approached by a male suspect who displayed a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded the victim’s property. A second suspect approached him from the back on a bicycle. The suspects stole his backpack, which contained a cell phone and other items.

At approximately 11 p.m. Sunday, a male student said he was walking on the sidewalk in front of the University Point Apartments at 1955 SW 5th Avenue and approached by two suspects. One pulled out a black handgun, pointed it at the victim and demanded his possessions. The victim gave the suspects some change and cigarettes. Both suspects left in a black sedan with a rear spoiler. The victim did not report the crime to CPSO until Monday evening.

The suspects in these crimes are described as follows:

In the Monday robbery, one suspect is described as a white male in his 20s, approximately 5’9”” and 150 to 160 pounds with spiked light colored hair. He wore black hoodie, a black and white bandana over his face and black jeans. The victim had no description of the second suspect on the bicycle.
