A student on campus was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday night, UNT police reported with a crime alert.

The student, whose identity has not been released, was walking near the University Union about 8:50 p.m., when two suspects entered the victim’s car, and pulled out a handgun, according to the university crime alert.

“They forced the victim to drive a short distance to UNT Lot 50 [300 S. Welch St.], where they demanded and took the victim’s cell phones (sic), wallet and car keys,” the crime alert reads.

A third suspect then drove to the student’s car and scooped up the other two suspects, then fleeing, the police say.

The suspects are described as 18-22 years old. One of the first two suspects, the police say, was “tall, muscular and wearing a black tank top and shorts. He had black, ‘box’ cut hair and was shaven. The other suspect was skinny with a plain white T-shirt, and was clean shaven.”

The getaway car is described in the crime alert as an “older, late 90s model Toyota Camry that was dark gray in color, with several dents.”

UNT spokeswoman Margarita Venegas told the Daily there were no updates as of 9 a.m. Wednesday.

“That’s as much as we know since it happened last night,” Venegas said. “I guess the only thing we would like to emphasize is that if anybody knows who did it to please contact UNTPD.”

This story will be updated as the story develops.

    How about giving a better description of the suspects like the race/ethnicity….

    This comes in the heels of TWU reporting students shooting out the windows of cars in their Library lot on the same night. This pattern is concerning.
