HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- A string of robberies on the Trinity College campus is concerning students and faculty. Thieves have been mugging students, stealing their cell phones.
"I heard about people being threatened with knives and things like that," said Emily Sullivan, a senior.
It happened over the weekend on the Trinity College campus, students being targeted by armed robbers for their cell phones.
"Two of them got punched in the face and one of the girls is in one of my classes and she has a fat lip and everything. And, they got their phones back because two of their guy friends chased after them and got the phones back," said Elly Worsley, a senior.
Campus security was able to detain one of the suspects, a second one got away. But Trinity has been working with Hartford police to find the robbers.
"I know campus security was all over it, and we had meetings last night about being safer on campus. One of my friends actually had a guy approach him, and try and take his phone a couple of nights," said Worsley.
On campus, the president called a meeting to have the new security measures explained. There is a lot of security. They added patrols, more lighting, and more blue light emergency call boxes.
They have also enhanced security cameras to see better at night. They are working hard to make the students feel as safe as they possibly can.
"The meeting made me feel a lot better. They told us about the procedures and that the shuttle buses will run more frequent," said Julia Baldwin, a senior.
The students have cell phones in hand around the campus, which is nice if they have to call 911 but also a target for robbers. This creates a dilemma for students.
"I would not walk around with it out at night, because that is when the muggings have been happening," said Baldwin.
