The Ohio University Police Department is on the look-out for two suspects involved in a robbery that took place on campus early Saturday morning.

Authorities say a female OU student was in a parking lot behind McMracken Hall, off Stewart Street, when she was confronted by a white male who demanded all of her money.

Authorities say the suspect told the victim he had a weapon and pulled out what appeared to be a box cutter.

The suspect then took the victim’s purse and fled southbound on Stewart Street in a dark-colored pick-up truck with a second suspect.

The victim was not injured in the incident, but authorities say one of the victim’s credit cards was used moments later at a Speedway gas station on Richland Avenue.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Ohio University Police Department at 740-593-1911.
