College Station police have released photographs of two men believed to be involved in two crimes that took place near and on the Texas A&M campus on July 5.
The images obtained from closed circuit television footage show two men in black clothing walking through a well-lit open area. Police said the men are suspected of forcing their way into an apartment at Northpoint Crossing on July 5. According to CSPD, at least one had a gun at the time.
Texas A&M University Police Department spokesperson Lt. Bobby Richardson confirmed that the same two men suspected by UPD investigators to be involved in an aggravated robbery that occurred at a construction site near campus on the same day.
University police issued a press release last week about an aggravated robbery around 11 a.m. July 5 on Hensel Drive. The victim said he was sitting in his vehicle near a construction site when a white car with two occupants the victim did not know approached. The front-seat passenger — a 5’11” light-skinned man with a curly, dark ponytail and dressed in black — got out and asked the victim for directions to the Northpoint Crossing apartments.
During the conversation, police said, the man withdrew a handgun and demanded the victim’s wallet. The man was hit with the handgun above his eye but did not require hospitalization. The two men then left the area, heading southbound on Texas Avenue.
According to College Station police, officers responded to Northpoint Crossing apartments at the intersection of Texas Avenue and University Drive. Witnesses told police someone knocked on an apartment door and asked for someone by name. When the apartment’s occupant said the person was not home, the man pushed his way inside to search for the person. He then left.
