UNFPD investigating a robbery and false imprisonment at the Landing

Ronnie Rodgers

According to an Osprey Campus Update, a student was hit in the head with a gun, tied up, and robbed in his dorm in Building X of The Landing by two suspects.

The victim said at around 7:45 p.m. he heard a knock at his door.  According to the crime alert, which was emailed to students, when he answered the door, there were two black males standing there. One man hit the victim in the head with a gun, and then two suspects came into his dorm room.

Once in the dorm, the suspects demanded money and drugs, according to the crime alert. The suspects tied the student up and stole $10 before leaving. As the suspects fled, the victim freed himself in time to see the suspects get into a dark colored car.

Witnesses also said they saw a third person in the staircase, maybe acting as a lookout police said. The ordeal was reported to police around a half an hour later, and the victim said he does not know the suspects.
