According to the email, officers with the University of Alabama Police Department were called to the scene of a robbery around 1:15 a.m. Sunday in the area of Stadium Drive and West 4th Street, a block away from the Walk of Champions and Bryant-Denny.

UA said two unidentified men beat and robbed a victim, who was not believed to be affiliated with the University.

The victim was not seriously injured, according to the alert, and the suspects who committed the robbery allegedly fled in an unknown vehicle.

The first suspect was described as a black male who was around six feet tall and slender with dreadlocks wearing white overalls and a black T-shirt.

The second suspect, also a black male, was described as slightly shorted, around 5-feet 10-inches, wearing a white shirt and white jeans.

Anyone who has any additional information about the reported robbery is asked to call University Police at 205-348-5454 or Crime Stoppers at 205-752-7867.
