Armed Robbery After Potential Drug Deal, Students on Lockdown

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Muhlenberg chapter.

At approximately 9:00p.m. on the night of Tuesday, October 24, 2017 two males approached a community member with what appeared to be a gun and asked for money.

The first male was described as mid-20’s in age, approximately 6’2 in height, wearing black clothing, black gloves & a black beanie. He was carrying a black duffle bag.

The second male was described as mid-20’s in age, approximately 5’10 in height, with short dark hair and lines shaved into his eyebrows. He had a scruffy beard and was wearing a black sweatshirt.

The incident occurred on campus in the vicinity of Benfer Hall. An unnamed source stated that the community member was dealing weed and got a gun pulled on them after they wouldn’t offer the two suspects money.

As of 11:10 pm when this article was posted, shelter was still in effect.

At 11:17 pm, Campus Safety gave the “All Clear” thus ending the lockdown.
