Two suspects were arrested early Saturday morning after allegedly beating and robbing a San Diego State University student, SDSU police department officials confirmed.
According to SDSU police Capt. Lamine Secka, the robbery happened around 12:30 a.m. outside of parking structure No. 5 on campus.
Secka said four suspects beat up a student and stole his cell phone.
The suspects were then followed by the victim’s friends to Mary Lane and 55th Street, where two of the four suspects were ultimately arrested by police.
Secka said officials are working to identify and arrest the other two remaining suspects.
He said the alleged robbers are not SDSU students.
Secka described the suspects who remain at large as two 6-foot-tall black males in their early 20s. They were wearing white shirts at the time of the robbery.
This robbery at SDSU comes on the heels of another attempted robbery that took place inside a campus bathroom on Aug. 28.
In that incident, SDSU police said three male suspects approached a male student inside the men’s restroom at the Love Library and began punching him in the head, demanding his cell phone.
The student didn’t have his phone on him and was able to escape with minor injuries. Those suspects are still being sought by SDSU police.
