RALEIGH, N.C. — Authorities are investigating a robbery that occurred Thursday night at North Carolina State University.

According to campus police, a male student was robbed at the Wachovia ATM in front of the NCSU bookstore on Dunn Avenue at about 11:30 pm.

Campus police say the victim stated that as he was leaving the ATM, a masked male placed a sharp object into his stomach while a second masked male pointed another sharp object at his side and said, "Give me what you got."

Authorities say the victim gave the second male his wallet while the first mugger took the victim's cell phone from his belt. Both ran from the scene toward the Talley Courtyard.

A third male, who police believe was probably a lookout, joined the fleeing suspects. The student was not harmed in the incident.

Police have released a description of the suspects. Suspects 1 and 2 are described as being black males measuring 5 feet 11 inches and weighing 185 pounds. They are believed to be between 18 to 24 years old and were wearing dark clothing and dark masks or scarves covering their faces.
