Buffalo State campus sees second on-campus robbery in a week

A student resident on the SUNY Buffalo State campus Tuesday reported to University Police he was the victim of a strong-arm robbery in his residence hall.

According to University Police, the robbery occurred at 2:15 p.m. when two people, along with three accomplices, entered the victim's room in Porter Hall and robbed him of his cellphone and a backpack.

A second person in the room was robbed of a cellphone and backpack, University Police said.

No weapon was displayed and neither victim was injured. The individuals fled the residence hall and campus, according to campus police.
