TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Tuscaloosa police are investigating the armed robbery of two University of Alabama graduate students.
The Tuscaloosa News reports that a suspect approached 24-year-olds Li Yang and Molei Wu in the parking lot of University Village early Monday morning. Yang says he walked up, held a gun out and demanded her purse. Wu gave another man his backpack.
The students say the bags contained apartment keys and car keys, wallets, iPhones, cash, bank cards, identification, text books, a history paper and a flash drive containing schoolwork.
Yang and Wu had studied late into the night at a campus library and returned to their apartment a short time after midnight Monday when the suspects approached.
Tuscaloosa police spokesman Sgt. Brent Blankley said officers have few clues to go on.
