Two San Diego State students were robbed at gunpoint in the pre-dawn hours Monday, the San Diego Police Department said.

At about 1:35 a.m., two students were walking off-campus near Dorothy Drive or Campanile Drive when two men approached them, police said.

One of the men was armed with a handgun, and the two demanded the students’ property.

After the robbery, the suspects were reported to have escaped in a white, four-door vehicle.

Neither of the victims were injured.

Police said the two suspects were described as black male adults, both weighing about 170 pounds and wearing black or dark-colored hooded sweaters, saggy pants and sneakers. One was said to be about 5-feet-7-inches tall, the other 5-feet-10-inches tall.

Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call SDPD at (619) 531-2000 or Crimestoppers at (888) 580-8477.
