Robbery takes place at Murray State

At approximately 12:10 a.m. Friday morning, three unknown subjects approached a victim South of the Carr Health Building on the campus.

The suspect then demanded the victim’s money and took it without further incident. It is unknown at this time the descriptions of the other two suspects. After the robbery the suspects fled in a white pickup truck in an unknown direction. The victim was not injured.
