Rome Police have launched an investigating into a reported armed robbery on the campus of Shorter University.
Reports said that the victim told polices that he was walking in Roberts Hall when he was approached by a white male asking “Where is my weed money?” The victim asked the man who he was looking for because he had no idea what he was talking about.
The victim then said that the suspect proceeded to lift up his shirt, exposing what appeared to be a gun before saying “Give me the money or I’ll shoot you.”
After the victim said he didn’t have any money, the suspect pulled out the gun, pointed it at him, and proceeded to take the victim’s cell phone and fled on foot.
The suspect was described as a white male, 5’9”, 170 pounds, with tattoos on his right arm.
He was wearing a hat that had what appeared to be a Pizza Hut emblem on it.
