SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego State University police were on the lookout Tuesday for two young men suspected of stealing a cellular phone and the getaway driver who helped them escape, authorities said.
The victim was sitting on a bench in the 5700 block of Hardy Avenue near Campanile Drive shortly before 10 p.m. Monday when two of the suspects ran up to him and grabbed his phone, according to a SDSU police statement.
The two men then ran across the street to a waiting older black two-door Honda with faded paint and a loud exhaust being driven by a third young man, and fled in an unknown direction, the statement said.
The victim was not injured, police said.
Police described two of the suspects as about 19-year-old black men who were between 6 feet and 6 feet 4 and were wearing tan shorts. One had on a red sweatshirt and the other was wearing a green sweatshirt.
The getaway driver was described as a Hispanic man of around 19.
Anyone with information on the robbery was asked to call police at (619) 594-1991, or Crime Stoppers at (619) 235-8477.
