A student was robbed of his possessions around 10:30 p.m. last night on campus.

Senior Daniel Dunston, Zacharias Hall, was walking back to his dorm after eating dinner at the Downing University Center when two men in front of the Preston Center robbed him, said Mandi Johnson, public information officer for WKUPD.

“Once he got around the Preston Center, one grabbed him and the other emptied his pockets,” she said. “Then they took off.”

The WKU text alert sent to students shortly after the robbery said the men fled toward the Pearce-Ford Tower parking lot.

Dunston’s iPhone and $25 in cash were stolen, and the total value of the theft is $244.99, according to the WKUPD media log.

The WKU text alert system said two black men were suspected in the robbery. One wore a blue shirt with light shorts and the other wore “dark clothing.”

Johnson said no weapons were presented and no injuries occurred.

The robbery is still under investigation with no suspects so far, Johnson said. There is some video footage but Johnson said she isn’t sure how clear it is.

“All we have is a robbery and not much to go with,” she said.
