Robbery On Campus At ECU

ECU Police are investigating a robbery on campus. Officials say a student was robbed behind Aycock Hall around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The alert from ECU says the student's wallet was taken during an altercation with two suspects. The student suffered what police called minor injuries but did not require medical treatment.

The alert says the suspects ran off toward 14th St. after the robbery.

The ECU Police Department is asking anyone with information about the robbery to call them at (252) 328-6787 or log on to www.ecu.edu/police.

    To Lena (and anyone that thinks that way): You comment is senseless. If "your" neighborhood was a high crime area, it could be said you should know better than to live there. Be it 2 P.M. or 2 A.M., people should never fear or expect to be robbed. If this was the case, NO ONE would ever leave the house after dark! So...Lena, do YOU go out after dark? Have you ever walked down the street at night? If so, Shame on you! You should know better.

    You know if the NC legislature would follow the lead of many other states and allow concealed carry on campus some of these would be robbers would think twice. Since schools are a firearms free zone they have no reason to fear any student can defend themself.

    Lena, when I attended ECU (not all that long ago) you could walk around most of Greenville (I won't say the part you couldn't since WITN will censor me) any time of day/night without worry. The problem is not the student being out at 1:30 AM. Maybe he was returning from work. The problem is the thug problem in Greenville that makes it so that innocent, decent people can't come and go as they please without some criminal denying their right to life, libery, and the pursuit of happiness.

    A reported robbery is not always a real robbery. Check recent reports by ECU students. A lot of ugly deals go down late at night. Also, bad things can happen to innocent people. Maybe innocent for the moment, but not in the cosmos. Karma is wild!

    I believe I said the victim was not using common sense. Walking alone that time of morning is dangerous for anyone!

    To Lena: You shouldn't accuse the victim of wrongdoing. He had a right to walk around campus at 1:30 am and not be robbed. He may have been walking back to his room after work or coming from studying at the library or another place. Wonder what the 2 males that committed this crime are on? Were they ECU students? Probably not. If they are, I hope they get suspended permanently.

    there is a computer lab that is open till 2am in the aycock basement. LENA its open to do school work. some kids have full time jobs and do homework late at night. unless you want to start paying our way through, i/we will continue to do homework whenever i/we choose to do so.

    The last assault and robberies were found to be untrue, but I am sure they were describe clearly. ECU students, crack is wack and meth is bad for your health. STOP LYING! At 1:30, you should have been asleep or at least not walking alone. You are in College, a place of Higher Learning; act like it. Use common sense, since your book sense are on Break!

    Sounds like they need more security. 1 rape and 2 robberies in just a few months. Not a safe place.

    TO: "TO Gville Bob," What difference does it make? Hmmm, let's see? Are we looking for two purple cows? Two Eskimos? Two hispanic females? No, we know to be looking for two black males in their twenties that robbed a student....I guess that's what makes the difference. The problem, I think Gville Bob is pointing out, is that the News tends to be a little too PC and won't include a description of the subjects....whether they are black, white, or even purple.
