Police report aggravated assault on Guadalupe


University and Austin police officers reported an aggravated assault by two armed suspects on Guadalupe Street on Monday evening.

APD officers responded after a call came in at 5:23 p.m. from an individual who was robbed at gunpoint in the 2600 block on Guadalupe.

In a text message alert sent out to the UT community, police described the suspects as two black males with a handgun in their possession, wearing do-rags and grills in their teeth.

“We always ask the community, students, faculty and staff to be very aware of their surroundings,” UTPD spokeswoman Cindy Posey said.

After urging people not to travel alone and to report any sightings of the two suspects immediately to 911, police later sent an all-clear message at 8:34 p.m. saying there was no longer a threat to the UT community because the suspects and the victim knew each other.
