ATLANTA -

Authorities say three men robbed four Georgia State University students at gunpoint in their dormitory room on Wednesday.

According to police, the suspects knocked on the door of a room at University Commons around 7 p.m.  Two men then pointed a gun at the victims and robbed them of their iPad and cell phones.

Surveillance footage captured an image of three suspects fleeing in a stairwell, according to police.

Police arrested all three suspects, and they say two of them are students at the school.

According to Carlton Mullis, the deputy chief of police at GSU, one of the victims identified one suspect as 18-year-old Quinton Arnold, a student at the school. Arnold was apprehended after the victim sent him a text and asked him to meet outside of University Commons.

A second suspect, 18-year-old Dantevious Deval Patrick, turned himself into to the Atlanta Police Department after seeing the surveillance picture. He is also a student at GSU.

The third suspect, 18-year-old Dorian Stroud, turned himself in after his mother alerted APD. He is a former student at the school.

All three suspects are charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and possession of firearm during commission of crime. They are being held at Fulton County Jail.
