Three men rob student northwest of campus

Temple Police are investigating an armed robbery of a student that occurred Sunday night northwest of Main Campus.

Executive Director of Campus Safety Services Charlie Leone said the student was walking along Edgley Street near Diamond, when three men approached him, one of whom had a gun and showed it to the student.

The suspects then took the student’s iPhone 5 and wallet, along with a ring, earphones and hat, Leone added.
No injuries were reported. A TU Alert was sent out about the incident at 8:50 p.m.

Leone said the student described the three men as 20-25 years old. He reported one wore a blue zip-up sweatshirt and tan pants with a gun tucked into the waistband, the second wore a dark hoodie and dark jeans, and the third wore a dark polo shirt and dark jeans.

Leone added Temple Police stopped men last night who fit the description, but the victim said none of them were the ones that robbed him. He added they will review security footage from private cameras on the houses surrounding the area of the incident.
