San Marcos, TEXAS (KXAN) - Just as college students at Texas State University are getting settled in, some random crimes are creating concern.
Someone struck twice Friday morning. Sunday--another attempt.
Getting adjusted to college life has its challenges.
"It's a lot of fun, but I'm still nervous about this-and-that, and I'm not quite sure how to handle everything," said Texas State freshman Ana Lisa Megill.
Of course college has plenty of perks, too.
"[There are] a lot more things to do, a lot more people, and it's really nice here," said fellow freshman Mitchell De Leon.
Now out on their own, new students also have to consider safety. It can be unnerving when it's threatened.
"[Sunday] morning I went running at 8:00, and I came back to hearing all these people outside in the parking lot saying, 'Did you see anything?' Just talking, trying to figure out what happened," De Leon said.
He lives in the Bobcat Village apartments, just across the street from Texas State Football's Bobcat Stadium. University police are investigating an attempted robbery of a student Sunday morning at Bobcat Village.
They're also investigating two armed robberies from Friday. The first happened at The Tower residence hall. It happened around 3:25 am Friday. The student told police he was sitting on a bench outside the building, when a man with a gun approached him, and robbed him.
"I was really shocked because I was actually awake at that time," said Migell, "And then I got the email [from the university] saying what had happened. It's crazy to think about that; that it could happen right outside your front door."
Immediately after the reported robbery at The Tower, a second student reported being robbed at gunpoint at the Sanctuary Loft--also student housing.
Police believe Friday's two robberies are related, and they aren't ruling out that Sunday's attempted robbery could be connected too.
As police continue their work, students say the diligence of the university makes it easy for them to keep focused on theirs, too.
"I like that they inform me, keeping me up to date," said De Leon, "And just make sure all their students are safe."
Texas State keeps close track of crimes on campus. The university's police department says there were zero robberies on campus last year, and only three in the two years prior.
