U.T. Police Looking for Muggers

U.T. Campus (WVLT) - Once again, the University of Tennessee Police Department is looking for a mugger.

Police have e-mailed students, saying three men approached a student near the intersection of Clinch Avenue and 17th Street at 3:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

They attacked him him and took his wallet.

The victim was not hurt.

He described one of the suspects as black, five feet nine inches tall, and about 175 pounds.

He had short hair and was wearing khaki pants, a black jacket with yellow sleeves, and an Atlanta Braves hat.

The victim says the second suspect was black, in his early 20s, five foot nine inches tall, between 170 and 180 pounds, and wearing a black jacket.

He couldn't give a description of the third suspect.
