Two robberies took place between 12:30 and 1 a.m. Thursday near campus, according to a report released by UNT police.

A man was robbed of his cell phone while he rode his bicycle around 12:30 a.m. on the 1600 block of West Hickory Street. There are three suspects, and no weapons were displayed or violent threats given during the altercation, the police said.

In a separate incident, a man was robbed of his cell phone and backpack around 1 a.m. near the intersection of Beatty Street and Eagle Drive, the police said.

Police describe the three suspects as a male wearing a white tank top, a female and a driver with no description available.

Police said the driver’s vehicle was a 4-door, red, late model car and may be occupied by more individuals than the three suspected robbers.

Anyone with information on the robberies should contact the UNT Criminal Investigations Division at 940-565-3006 or UNT Crime Stoppers at 940-369-TIPS.

Email from UNT spokeswoman Margarita Venegas:

The victims in Event 1 and 2 are different people.

The suspects for each event are believed to be the same. UNT PD does believe these incidents are related in that respect.

The victims are both students but specific information is not being given out about them at this time so as not to interfere with the investigation.

The investigation is ongoing. UNT Police and Denton Police are both working on it.

No arrests have been made at this time.

The North Texas Daily will post updates when details are made available.
