    The San Diego State University police department is looking for three suspects accused of attempting to rob an SDSU student in the men’s restroom.

    According to SDSU police, the alleged robbery attempt happened on Aug. 28 in the second-story bathroom at SDSU’s Love Library.

    Three suspects approached a male student from behind while he was in the men's room and began punching him in the back of his head. During the attack, they demanded the victim’s cell phone, SDSU police said.

    The student didn’t have his phone on him and was able to escape the attempted robbery with minor injuries.

    University police said they obtained surveillance video of the three suspects entering the Love Library that day.

    Police describe one of the suspects as a college-age black male wearing a gray Mira Mesa Marauders sweatshirt, red basketball shorts, white socks and white shoes. The second suspect is described as a light skinned, college-age black male with bushy hair, wearing a long-sleeve jacket, white shirt, dark pants and dark shoes.

    The third suspect is a college-age black male with short hair, wearing eyeglasses and a light gray sweatshirt with the words “Associated Students” across the front.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact SDSU police at (619) 594-1991.
