ETSU Public Safety received a report of two separate armed robbery incidents in the parking lot area off of Centennial Drive next to Buccaneer Ridge Apartment buildings P, Q, R and S at 1 a.m. on Dec. 3.
The Safety Notice sent out to students reads: “In both incidents, the students were approached in the parking lot area as they returned to their apartments. Several males, one with a gun, demanded the students hand over their valuables.”
The suspects told the students to run from the area after handing over their valuables. The students complied, and no one was harmed.
A similar incident was reported at an off campus apartment complex soon after, which resulted in multiple arrests.
ETSU Public Safety and the Johnson City Police Department are working together to investigate the robberies.
Those with any information should contact Public Safety at 439-4480.
