Robbery Suspects Under Arrest

By Mark Scott

Buffalo, NY – Buffalo police say three suspects are under arrest in connection with the alleged abduction of two University at Buffalo students.

A report by WIVB Television in Buffalo quotes authorities as saying they believe the suspects are responsible for at least three kidnap-style robberies in recent weeks.

WBFO News was informed by University officials Monday that the two male students were abducted from the Spaulding Lot on the North Campus at 8pm Sunday. The students were robbed before being released near UB's South Campus around midnight.

The university has added extra police patrols for the days ahead and the campus community is being asked to be alert.
