The probe into an alleged armed robbery near the University Center has been closed after the alleged victim decided to sign a “termination of investigation” form over the weekend.
An email was sent out to all faculty, staff and students Jan. 26 describing an alleged armed robbery incident that took place on the 1100 block of N. Patterson St., where a cell phone was stolen from the victim at gunpoint.
The email also mentioned that the alleged suspects were three African-American males and one African-American female driving a blue Toyota or Honda.
According to Lt. Aaron Kirk of the Valdosta Police Department, the alleged victim repeatedly changed his story concerning the details of the armed robbery.
Kirk said that the alleged victim initially said that he was dragged around a building.
Later, he said that the incident occurred on the side of the road, and that there weren’t any witnesses around.
However, Kirk said that the UC cameras caught traffic going by at the time of the incident.
The alleged victim still claims to have not known the attackers.
No further details have been released.
