Two ECU Students Robbed At Gunpoint

Two East Carolina students were robbed at gunpoint on their first weekend back at school.

An alert from ECU Campus Safety says the two women were held up at the corner of Tenth and Charles Blvd. in Greenville, near the Sheetz.

The armed robbery happened around 10:30 p.m. Friday. Police say a man on a bike stole their purses. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Greenville Police.

    At UGA, there were cops on bikes writing tickets for passing cars at a stop light (you must follow traffic laws when riding a bike). What I see here are cops hanging out (all together) in the same parking lot EVERY night. HOW is that protecting the public. Maybe they could actually move around a bit, walk/ride a bike?!?! It was at 10:00 and at a busy intersection. LAZINESS is the ONLY excuse I can come up with. OHH, by the way, preventing cars to drive downtown Thurs-Sun is absurd. It is doing NOTHING! Obviously, those poor girls.

    The worse part is people are more interested in a pitt bull chewing off a babies toes then people getting murdered, raped, and mugged in our own city. It is so sad.

    All towns have crime- fact. But, New Bern has a shooting in broad daylight today and has had MANY recent violent crimes. Especially for a town 1/2 the size of Greenville. Thank goodness the New Bern shooter was caught. I love New Bern, so don't misunderstand me. But some of this is perception, which fuels the MULTITUDE of posts every time a crime occurs in Greenville, while other towns don't bear the same or proportional brunt. Also, if you have lived anywhere else, crime is perceived (maybe rightly so) as going up EVERYWHERE, and people elsewhere also make the same mistake of believing it is only a local phenomenon. Take Dave for example. He regularly mocks Greenville, yet is moving to Pittsburgh, a town with SERIOUS/entrenched violent crime; even when compared to population stats. Still, this G'ville police chief seems impotent and beholden to pandering ignorant politicians who are more interested in pointing fingers, diversion and window dressing than helping the issue. Perspective.

    Greenville is probably to most unsafe town east of Winston Salem.

    Someone inform the Chief of Police. He seems in the dark about his own city.

    Concerned, Mr Smarts race has already proven that they're not competent to run a country(THE USA), much less a entire planet!

    Worse than Charlotte??? It already is! At least in Charlotte you can separate yourself from bad parts of town. In Greenville the ghetto buts up to every neighborhood.

    With all the police downtown this kind of thing shouldn happen. The cops downtown by the clubs dont do anything other than harrass taxpayers while the criminals always get away. The cops dont like people downtown having fun and its a shame because we pay their salary.

    Greenville will become worse than Charlotte within the next 3-5 years.
