MTSU student kidnapped, robbed at gunpoint

Posted: Updated:

Two gunmen forced a student at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro to withdraw money from an ATM over the weekend and they could be linked to a similar crime last week.

The student told police the men approached him in the parking lot of the College Grove Apartments on Lascassas Highway around 9:30 p.m. Sunday and demanded his wallet.

When they realized it was empty, the suspects forced the victim to drive to an ATM on Greenland Drive and withdraw $500.

Once they returned to the apartments, the suspects told the victim not to call police, stole his iPhone and then fled.

The student reported the robbery Monday morning.

The men are described as black males, both six feet tall.  

Detectives obtained a surveillance photo from the ATM that shows the victim and one of the suspects standing behind him.

The second suspect was described as wearing a letterman style jacket with red with white sleeves.

Both also reportedly had some type of overalls with a stripe across the chest under the jacket.

The investigation to identify the suspects is ongoing.

Police are investigating a similar robbery at the same apartment complex.

An 18-year-old woman was robbed of $100 in cash, her cell phone and purse on the night of November 13.

"They just told me that if I made any noise I would be dead. It shocked me that is for sure," victim Dallas Fox told News 2. "I can probably identify the guns better than I can identify them to be honest. They told me to give them my purse, my phone, they told me to empty my pockets."

The two suspects, armed with black handguns, were described as black males in their 20s.

Anyone with information on either case should call Murfreesboro police at 615-893-2717 or Crime Stoppers at 615-893-STOP.
