Georgia State University Hit with 3rd Armed Robbery in Two Months

Georgia State University police issued a crime alert, 14 January, informing students that an armed robbery took place on campus in the school's library.

According to police, a GSU student was robbed at gunpoint by an unknown suspect of his MacBook and cell phone at 9:15AM. There were no injuries reported.

The suspect was described as a black male, 6’ in height weighing 180 lbs. with a beard and low style haircut, wearing khaki pants, dark blue jacket and white shoes.

This is the third armed robbery to occur on or near the GSU campus in the past two months. Two other incidents were reported last month; a 15 December armed robbery in the campus library and a 10 December armed robbery at an off-campus residence. An arrest was made in the 15 December crime, and charges are pending.

Georgia State University police they enhanced library patrols with specialized units this month, and will continue with vigorous patrols in the libraries.
