Two men were robbed at gunpoint Monday morning, Nov. 19, at Foothill College, a campus spokesman said. According to law enforcement officials, no one was hurt during the robbery.
The robbery occurred at about 9 a.m. when a man approached two other men, brandished a handgun and then made off with their backpacks, according to Kurt Hueg, associate vice president of external relations at Foothill.
A Foothill press release describes the robber as a black man, about 18-25 years old, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall and perhaps 160 pounds. His hair was black and cropped close. He did not have any facial hair and was not wearing any jewelry, according to the two victims.
The robber was last seen running up from the footbridge onto campus with the two victims' black backpacks, the release said. The authorities are currently working on a sketch of the suspect.
