Duke University police have put out sketches of two men whom they are seeking in connection with a robbery near the campus last week and who have been linked to two similar stickups in Chapel Hill and two on the UNC campus.
The drawings are based on the recollection of a man who was robbed outside a university-owned apartment building at 301 Swift Ave. at 1:40 a.m. Friday.
Late Wednesday, a man and a woman were robbed on the University of North Carolina campus near Raleigh and Country Club roads, UNC police said.
Shortly after those robberies, two men were robbed in the area of East Franklin Street and North Estes Drive, Chapel Hill police said.
Never miss a local story.
Victims’ descriptions were similar in each case, police said.
In the Duke sketch, the man on the left was described as being 5-6 to 5-8 and weighing about 145 pounds. He has a very dark complexion and held a gun used in the Duke robbery in his right hand, police said.
The second man, on the right, was described as bald, 6-1 to 6-2 and weighing about 180 pounds. He has a dark complexion, police said.
