On November 18 at 10:55 pm LSU Police received a report of an armed robbery on Highland Road near Raphael Semmes. The victim was walking when approached on foot by the suspect. The suspect was described by the victim as a black male, approximately 6’3”, slender build, wearing a gray hoodie, khaki pants and white tennis shoes. The suspect was armed with a handgun and demanded the victim’s property and the victim complied. The suspect was last seen fleeing on foot until the victim lost sight of the suspect.
At 11:24 pm LSU Police received a second report of an armed robbery in Hart lot which is located just east of Kirby Smith Hall. The victim advised he was approached by two suspects who demanded his property. Both suspects were described by the victim as black males, one of which was the same description from the previous incident, who had a handgun. Both suspects ran and were seen entering a white compact car being driven by a third person and fled the area.
Baton Rouge Police are also working an armed robbery with the same suspect descriptions that occurred on State Street in the same time frame as the Hart Lot incident.
LSU Police are actively investigating these two incidents and urge all of the LSU Community to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings. Anyone who has any information or sees any suspicious activity, are encouraged to contact law enforcement immediately.
