Police say they are still searching for a man that robbed a Baylor student. The incident happened at Speight Jenkins Apartments Saturday. One of the victims, Ben Roberts, says he and his friend were on the porch around 9 p.m. when a man armed with an assault rifle ran up the stairs at the apartments. Roberts said the robber pointed the gun at them and said, "Don't scream! Don't scream! I want your cash."

Roberts said when describing the attack, "He threatened to shoot it off if we moved, and he pointed it at us and got real close to us with the gun. I was nervous, real nervous, but I didn't feel like he was going to shoot me. He did have a gun, but I kind of had a feeling it was empty."

The man made the two go into the house and forced them to hand over their wallets. After that, Roberts said the man ran off. Police are still investigating the incident.
