YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio- Youngstown Police are looking for two suspects who allegedly robbed two YSU students.

The armed robbery happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday at 472 Norwood Ave. Youngstown State University police say that the suspects, described as two teenage males around 15-20 years old, pulled out a gun and robbed the students while they were sitting in a car after returning from a party.

The suspects then fled toward Belmont Avenue.

YSU sent out another Text Alert to warn recipients of the robbery shortly before 2 a.m.
