LI university robbery suspects sought

Posted: Updated:

STONY BROOK, N.Y. (AP) - Police are investigating after students at Stony Brook University reported being threatened with a weapon before being robbed.

Suffolk County police say the first incident occurred on Sunday around 10:20 p.m. A student was walking along the bike path next to the athletic fields when he was approached by a group of men. Police say 1 of the suspects displayed a knife and stole the victim's cell phone and wallet before fleeing.

On Tuesday, around 12:50 a.m., three students were walking in the same area when they were approached by two men wearing ski masks. Police say 1 of the men produced what appeared to be an Airsoft gun and demanded money from the students.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
