CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating an armed robbery on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
School officials say two men confronted two victims walking to East Deck Two early Sunday morning.
The suspects reportedly displayed a firearm and demanded property from the victims, then fled on foot towards Van Landingham.
The first suspect is described as a short black male in his early 20s, wearing a red hoodie. The second suspect is said to be a "taller" black male wearing a black hoodie.
No photos were released to NBC Charlotte.
If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call police.
UNCC school officials released the following safety tips in wake of the incident:
- Walk/jog/bike in groups in clear, well-lighted, well-traveled area.
- Avoid using headphones or cell phones, which distract the listener and are popular robbery items.
- Avoid wearing flashy or expensive jewelry; wait until you are inside a safe place/event to put it on.
- On campus after dark, use one of the 300+ “blue light” emergency phones to request an escort or report suspicious activities.
- Ask to have a safety program presented to your campus department/organization, residence hall, class, or other group (large or small).
- If you are alone, utilize the UNC Charlotte Parking and Transportation Services Safe Ride free evening safety transport service or use the free on-campus CATS shuttle bus.
