COLLEGE PARK, Md. — University of Maryland Police need the public's help in identifying two males that were involved in an early morning robbery.

On Saturday, at around 3:15 a.m., the University of Maryland Police Department was notified of a robbery that occurred at a little before 2:30 a.m. that morning. A male student told police that he was walking past a group of guys and words were exchanged, but, as the student continued to walk inside Annapolis Hall, he made a hand gesture to the group and one of the guys followed him inside and a physical altercation happened.

The male then took the student's hat off of his head and left.

The student opened the door, yelled out and the suspect and one other male entered and a second physical altercation occurred. The student was able to get away, while the suspect and the other male left the area.

Officers were able to acquire images of the suspect and the male/person of interest through camera in the area. Police say that a video review of the cameras in the area is underway.

Individuals with any information regarding this incident and/or the identity of the suspect or person of interest are encouraged to contact police at (301) 405-3555.
