Three gunmen robbed four Georgia State University students inside a campus dorm and officials on Thursday said they have caught the three suspects.
The crime happened shortly after 7 p.m. Wednesday in Building C at University Commons, according to GSU police online campus crime alert.
“The suspects knocked on the door and two of the suspects pointed a hand gun in their face and robbed them of their IPad and cell phones,” police said.
The trio then left through a stairwell, according to police. No injuries were reported.
GSU police Deputy Chief Mr. Carlton Mullis identified the suspects as Mr. Quinton Arnold, 18, Mr. Dantevious Devall Patrick, 18, and Mr. Dorian Demetrius Stroud, 19, acording to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Mr. Arnold is a GSU student, and Mr. Stroud is a former GSU student last enrolled in the fall of 2012.
Mr. Patrick has no affiliation with GSU, the school's spokeswoman Ms. Andrea Jones told the paper.
Investigators believe some of the victims and suspects were acquaintances.
It’s unclear where the suspects were arrested, but all three were booked into the Fulton County Jail, officials said.
The suspects were charged with burglary with intent to commit a theft, possession of firearm during commission of a felony, armed robbery, aggravated assault, according to booking records.
