Monday around 7:20 p.m. a different student was walking near Shattuck Hall when he said a suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded the student’s property as a second suspect came up behind the student on a bicycle.

The two suspects stole the student’s backpack, which contained several items including his cell phone.

The student described the first suspect as a white male in his 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 150 to 160 pounds with spiked light colored hair, wearing a black hoodie and black jeans with a black and white bandana over his face.
