University police are looking for two suspects they said coaxed a person on campus to purchase electronics from an Apple store, only to steal the items for themselves.

A crime alert issued Friday reported that the two men posed as Apple sales representatives in order to persuade a victim, who has not been identified, to apply for a line of credit using a cellphone. The initial encounter happened at about 6:50 p.m. Thursday outside the Business Leadership Building, according to police.

The three traveled to an off-campus Apple Store, where the victim purchased three smart phones, believing the suspects would buy the phones back from the victim, police reported. After returning to UNT, the phones were taken from the victim. The victim was not injured.

The suspects left campus in a gray four-door sedan with an unknown make, model and license plate. According to the crime alert, the first suspect is a black male with a light complexion, 5’8” and 170 lbs. He has a “shag” haircut and was wearing a red jumpsuit and black and white Puma shoes. The second suspect was also a black male with a dark complexion, 6’0” and 240 lbs.

“Our detective for the case is doing an investigation, but there hasn’t been any more information since the crime alert went out,” UNT police spokesman John DeLong said.

UNT police encourage anyone who may have information to call with tips.
