April 28, 2011
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – A Colorado State University student has told police he was held up at gunpoint on campus by a robber who stole his wallet, backpack and keys.
CSU police say the holdup occurred Tuesday night in a parking lot near the Lory Student Center.
CSU officials sent students a text message alerting them to the incident shortly after it happened.
University spokesman Brad Bohlander tells the Fort Collins Coloradoan that administrators are reminding students to be vigilant and report suspicious activity.
Police say the suspect fled in a dark green, older-model van. Witnesses reported a female passenger was also in the van.
