Students robbed at gunpoint in Mayo alley

Two A&M-Commerce students were robbed at gunpoint in an alley on the 1800 block of Mayo Street around 9:45 last night.

The men had their student ID cards and cell phones taken. No one was injured in the incident. They told Commerce Police two males wearing black ski masks and black clothing approached them displaying guns and demanding money. One suspect was described as a black male just over 6-feet tall and about 200 lbs, and the other was 5 foot 10 inches tall and approximately 170-180 lbs. The suspects drove away in a black van or SUV that had a "noisy engine."

The university has taken this opportunity to remind students to remain alert when walking across campus at night and be aware of blue-light emergency phones and their locations.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects or the vehicle that may have been seen leaving the area is advised to contact the Commerce Police Department at (903)886-1139.
