RICHMOND — Three male students were in an Eastern Kentucky University dorm room late Sunday night when an armed robbery involving two men who brandished handguns took place.
Monday morning, EKU spokesperson Marc Whit provided additional details of the incident that prompted university officials to issue a campus security alert just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday.
While campus police confirmed an armed robbery took place in a Clay Hall room, they would not disclose what was taken, Whit said, citing the investigation’s ongoing nature.
The suspects were described as two black men wearing all black clothing and white face masks who fled from the residence hall in a northerly direction.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the EKU Police Department at 622-1111.
