Robbery Reported on Stony Brook Campus

1 p.m update from SBU Emergency Management: "After a further interview of the victim and a nearby witness, it has now been determined that there were two suspects who approached the victim and forcibly held him and removed an iPhone from his pants pocket. The suspects then fled in an unknown direction. The victim has been unable to provide a detailed description. University Police are asking anyone with information to immediately contact Investigators at 631-632-3333."

Original story: 

Police are investigating a robbery on the Stony Brook University campus Friday.

The college's Emergency Management website posted a "Campus Safety Advisory" at 1:30 a.m. stating that university police were "investigating a report of an alleged Robbery in the vicinity of O'Neil College."

No weapons were used and the suspects fled the scene, the message said. 

At 4 a.m., another message stated that university police and Suffolk police "conducted an extensive search of the campus and surrounding areas" for suspects, but those searches "yielded negative results."

Officials said the victim was still being interviewed Friday morning and was unable to provide a further detailed description of the suspects.

Bumpkin, many students from across Long Island attend Stony Brook. Email me at ryan@patch.com with an address on the burglary and I'll check with SCPD.
