A student at SIU-Edwardsville was reportedly robbed early this morning near the Cougar Village Apartments. Campus police issued an alert earlier this morning about the robbery that took place after midnight. The 20 year old male victim told authorities he was held up by two men, one who had a gun.
Both of the suspects were described as black males in their 20s, wearing dark clothing, one with a stocking cap. Both stood about 6 feet tall and had a thin build and were last seen eastbound on Cougar Lake Drive. Police continue to investigate the incident.
