An ECU student looking to pick his sister up from downtown Greenville ended up the victim of an aggressive robbery.
Krestin Barnes says her brother James is doing well but suffered a broken nose in the robbery.
It happened just after 1:00 a.m. Saturday when we're told that James was sitting in his car in the parking lot just across from Cotanche Street. That's where the umbrella market takes place.
Krestin Barnes says that three men walked up to her brother's car and asked him for his wallet. She says the group ended up opening his door and punched him in the face before running with his cell phone.
Greenville Police say that there is surveillance video of the suspects--but that investigators are not ready to release that footage yet.
ECU officials alerted students and faculty to the robbery just one hour after it took place.
