Two people were taken into custody following an armed robbery on Marquette’s campus Sunday night. 

It happened near 18th and Kilbourn around 10:30 p.m.

Marquette Police say a male student was walking in the area when two people approached him and flashed a gun. 

The student gave the robbers his property and the suspects ran away. 

Police were able to find and arrest the suspects 30 minutes later and recovered the victim’s belongings. 

Police are reminding students to walk in pairs or groups if possible, or call 414-288-6363 for safety patrol escorts.
