Two male suspects robbed a female student at gunpoint around 8 p.m. Oct 11 near Bech Hall at Santa Rosa Junior College.

The student told the SRJC District Police officers the men approached her from behind, one grabbed at her sleeve, pointed a gun into her back and demanded she give him everything she had. She took some money from her backpack and gave it to one suspect.

The robbers escaped on foot, probably between Lark Hall and Baker Hall with her money after pushing her into the bushes, the student said.

The suspects wore dark hoodies shadowing their faces and had darker complexions. The suspect yielding the black handgun was described as being medium build and possibly wearing a gold chain. The second suspect was heavy set and around 6-feet tall and was wearing a sweatshirt that said “USA” on it.

SRJC District police, who responded within minutes of the call, searched the area but could not locate the suspects.
