Two men attempted to rob a man at Sacramento State Friday at 9:47 p.m. across State University Drive from Sequoia Hall, according to the Sacramento State Police Department.

According to Sac State Police Chief Mark Iwasa, the victim is a Sac State student who was returning to the residence halls when he was stopped by the two suspects, who then pulled a knife on him.

“As soon as he saw the knife come out he dropped the scooter and ran,” Iwasa said. “He heard them say something that sounded like they wanted him to give up his stuff but he didn’t stick around long enough to have a conversation with them, he ran like crazy.”

According to Iwasa, police were able to respond to the scene in two minutes and found the victim. However, the suspects were not found after a search of the area.

The first suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 150 pounds and wearing a dark hoodie and khaki pants. The second suspect is described as a black male also in his 20s, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 200 pounds and wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about the attempted robbery or the suspects is asked to call the Sac State Police Department at (916) 278-6000.
