Two students robbed off campus


Two suspects were arrested earlier today and are being held at the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department following the armed robbery of two EMU students at an off-campus house.

The students were sitting on a porch at their residence in the 400 block of N. Hamilton Street, when three males approached at about 12:45 a.m., according to a release from the EMU Police Department.

One of the suspects revealed a handgun and told the victims to turn over their belongings. The victims said another suspect had a gun as well.

The victims, one male and one female, handed over a laptop computer, a cell phone and a purse, before the suspects fled on foot, the release said.

Police are still searching for a third suspect, and the two others are being held pending warrant authorization, the release said.

Anyone with information can call the Ypsilanti Police Department at 734-483-9510.
