LUBBOCK, Texas — Texas Tech issued a crime alert, saying there were two attempted armed robberies near the campus Wednesday night.

“At 10:17 p.m. on November 23, 2022, a 9-1-1 call was received from an individual reporting that a Hispanic male attempted to rob him in the alleyway behind IHOP near 18th and University,” the alert said.

“At 10:23 p.m., on November 23, 2022, a second 9-1-1 call was received from a second individual reporting a Hispanic male attempted to rob her near 15th street and Avenue X,” the alert said.

The first caller, TTU said, reported that the gunman wore a hoodie and a mask. The second caller reported that the gunman wore a jean jacket and a mask.

“Both callers said the Hispanic male pointed a gun at them,” the crime alert said.
