Teen, 10-year-old try to rob 3 at knife-point on NC State campus, police say

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- NC State University police officers are trying to track down the two boys accused of trying to rob three people at knife-point on campus Thursday morning.

It happened just after 1:30 a.m. on Avent Ferry Road near Varsity Drive.

The victims said they were walking home from Sammy's Bar and Grill, as they do every week after karaoke.

While they were walking along Avent Ferry Road, one of the victims said two young boys, who were riding BMX-style bikes, started yelling at them.

The older of the two then took out a pocket knife and demanded their wallets.

"I've never experienced anything like this on campus," one of the victims, who did not want to be identified, said. "I mean it wasn't technically on campus but this close to campus before so it was a shock."

The armed boy was described as being 14 or 15, while the other was said to be 10.

The teen was last seen wearing a multi-colored button down shirt and shorts. The other was wearing a blue shirt and shorts.

Campus police officers remind students to walk in packs, to stay in well-lit areas, or use the university's Safety Escort Services.
