Police arrest 4, search for 2 in attempted robbery on campus

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State University police have arrested four men and are searching for two others after an attempted robbery overnight at the campus, authorities said.

Indiana State students Myrin Kirksey, 19, Gary, and Mykel Mayes, 18, Crown Point, were arrested on suspicion of robbery while another student, Martel Murphy, 19, Gary, along with Brandon Hollingsworth, 19, Gary, were arrested on suspicion of assisting a criminal, according to authorities.  

Hollingsworth is not an Indiana State student. The four men are scheduled to appear in Vigo Superior Court Division 1 today.

According to Indiana State University, the incident occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday when the six men allegedly accosted two former students on a parking lot at the southwest edge of campus. Police say one of the men knocked a male visitor to the ground and demanded anything of value. The other men then surrounded a female visitor and demanded valuables. Two of the six tried to pull a purse away from the woman. She resisted, and some of the men began pushing and shoving her to prevent her from escaping.

A friend of the couple was nearby and called 911. University police took six people into custody shortly after the incident. Four were arrested and the other two were released. However, police are still searching for two more men believed to have been involved in the attack.

University police say the victims were on campus visiting current students. Nothing was stolen in the incident, and there were no injuries.
