2 UA students beaten, robbed outside campus gas station

Suspects have not been caught

The University of Arizona Police Department is searching for three men who beat and robbed two students early Friday morning near a university gas station.

Just before 2 a.m., two white Coronado residents were walking from the residence hall, 822 E. Fifth St., to the Texaco Service Station, 501 N. Park Ave, when three black men offered to sell them marijuana. The students ignored the men and continued walking.

"It is unknown whether they had drugs or it was a ploy to lure people close to the vehicle," said UA Police Sgt. Mike Smith.

The three men left their Geo Metro and attacked the two students. One of the students was punched in the face once, and the other was struck seven times in the face and chest.
